In brief: Inflammation
Chemicals from the bite irritate the skin and blood vessels and cause an irritation ti the nerve fibers causing swelling het and possible hemorrhage in the skin.
Bites can also become infected.

In brief: Hot Insect Bites
Bee and wasp stings can cause real problems if you are allergic.
As with spider bites, a person can get a localized allergic reaction (swelling, heat, or itching of the skin around the bite area) or a systemic allergic reaction.
