In brief: Insect bites
Treatment will depend on the severity of your condition.
It is important to note that no specific antivenom is available to counteract the poison injected by the insect. The majority of problems requiring medical treatment result from the allergic reaction to the sting. Many of the complications from an allergic reaction respond well to various medications-when given in time.

Depending upon what insect is responsible.
If this is from a bee sting reaction, then there are potential treatments available. Speak with a physician to understand what the reaction was and the best treatment options.
