Hi Bisi, thank you for the question.
My advice would be to see your family doctor who can examine the area and decide on the best treatment option. From your description it seems that an allergic type reaction has occurred and as this may have been caused by a bite (insect, spider, etc.) it may become infected – best to see your doctor.
