I received a bug bite 2-3 days ago, in the back of knee. Today it is three times the size, swollen, red, itchy, hot to the touch. Help?

In brief: Infection/allergy

Allergic reactions usually happen within hours, but can persist for days.
Increasing redness and swelling after 2 days can be a sign of infection that requires antibiotics. If any fever, or red streaks, or tenderness in the groin develops, those are very serious signs of a worsening infection. Please see a doctor now.
