Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is difficult to diagnose the cause of the bite, without a direct examination and additional ‎history. ‎

But it does seem that you have a inflammatory reaction to the bite. ‎

You can apply cold packs to the affected area and it should reduce the redness and soreness. In ‎addition Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) can be taken for a few days, that will help in early healing ‎and also relieve symptoms sooner. ‎

In case the symptoms get worse or do not get better in 2-3 days, then consulting a doctor for ‎prescription of a course of antibiotics to treat any local infection might be essential. ‎
