I got stung 4 days ago by a wasp. My stomach swelled up with a noticeable red welt about 10"x5" around the sting. The redness is still there and numb?

In brief: Skin reaction

to the venom the wasp injects when it stings.
It can last up to a week, then should gradually improve. If you start having difficulty breathing or throat swelling, see your doctor or go to the ER. Hope this helps!
