In brief: Sounds like it

Sounds like cellulitis.
Bacteria which cause cellulitis need a portal of entry into the skin, in yourcp case it was likely the bug bite. Keflex is an appropriate drug to treat this. If the redness and swelling don't decrease over the next day or two, consider calling the np again.
