I got a bug bite 2-3 days ago, and it immediately swelled up. The swelling spread to 60% of my foot (not my toes and not the bottom of my foot). There was a ton of itching, which has gone down, and now it just hurts a bit and the swelling has gone down a bit. Now it looks a bit bruised and gross-looking. I've been using Benadryl, motrin, aloe vera, and ice. Any further suggestions or thoughts?
