Itchy Swollen My Right Calf Symptoms
I got stung by a bee on my calf yesterday and it is very swollen, red, hot, itchy, and painful. Am i allergic?
Not really : Your tissues are responding to toxic bee venom. If you were truly allergic you might have tightness of bronchial passageways within first few minutes & difficulty breathing. Apply an oatmeal paste for itching. Cold compresses will tend to reduce swelling. Hot shower might make swelling worse. Take otc tylenol or Ibuprofen for discomfort. Elevate the arm. All should resolve in few days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I woke up the other night with 4 what looks like bites but also white so welts but swollen red and itchy but I've had a few on my leg before they alwa?

If the welts clear after a day only to appear elsewhere, this would favor an allergic reaction to food,medication,etc rather than insect bites which last several days at each site. Antihistamines relieve hives and the itching of bites. See your MD as needed. ...Read more
I have just a large red lump on my leg, hard to the touch and very itchy, and very large. Swollen and red. Should I be alarmed?
Have it seen: It is difficult to diagnose issues with the skin without having them seen by a physician. As a "very large, swollen, red lump" is not normal on the leg it would be a good idea to have a physician look at it. The fact that the area itches would make me suspicious of possibly it starting out as an insect bite; however, a secondary infection requiring antibiotics is certainly possible. ...Read more
