In brief: Wasp

Take some antihistamines such as Allegra (fexofenadine).
Your physician may also prescribe you a short course of steroids

A great remedy for the pain of Bee stings is Soy Sauce directly to the skin.It really works fast and stops the pain.

In brief: Insect bite

It is not unusual to have swelling and feeling hot.
It shows more especially if it is on the back of your hands. It will subside with time. Icing and anti histamine and anti inflammatory medicine might help.
