I got a bug bite 2-3 days ago and it swelled up, swelling 60% of my foot (not my toes or the bottom of my foot though). It was pretty red and itched a ton. The itching has gone away and so has the swelling a bit. But now it looks a bit bruised and gross-looking. I've used Benadryl, motrin, aloe vera, and ice. Any further suggestions or thoughts?
