In brief: Bug bite

It sounds like a localized allergic reaction.
Benadryl (diphenhydramine) tablets (not just benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream), ice application and topical hydrocortisone cream are a good start. If still swollen, then a prescription for an oral steroid like prednisone can calm down the reaction.
