Dear patient,

Consider applying glycerin magsulphate over the swollen parts, also would be better to start a course of antibiotics with painkillers. I have not seen any doc prescribing in this forum so do see a clinicians nearby
And finally find the culprit may bee somekind of honey bee . Find the nest an destroy it as stings are very notorious forthcoming fatal allergic reactions
