Brief Answer: oral antihistamines and Cortisone lotion will help Detailed Answer: You seem to have got an acute inflammatory response in the area of the bite. I would recommend taking Tablet Claritin 10 mg once or twice a day for 10 days + Cortaid lotion over the affected areas. These are antihistamines and Cortisone lotions which are available over the counter and will help in reducing the inflammation. Please note that if you have any lip swelling or difficulty in breathing you should see doctor right away. You may need a shot of steroid to heal it faster.
