In brief: Insect bite

The response to a sting or bite from insects is variable and depends on a variety of factors.
Most bites and stings result in pain, swelling, redness, and itching to the affected area. The skin may be broken and become infected if the bite area is scratched. Your insect bite has become infected. See your local doctor.
