Our expert says:
You are correct in assuming that it is a bite and not a sting. We can only speculate about what bit you but now you are experiencing severe inflammation and oedema in the area. You will have to consult a doctor for an examination. In the interim, you can apply Bactroban ointment to the area and use Ibuprofen 400mg, three times daily to alleviate the swelling.
