In brief: Depends

Depends on the severity of the reaction on the skin-redness, swwollen, pain.
As well as what kind of insect bite. The reaction are varies on different individuals, some are very allergic, some have minor eaction. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is recomended first.But you have pain with swelling then you need to see a doctor for steroids and/or antibiotics
