Bug bite, redness, green pus. Cleaned with peroxide, cetaphil. Treatment for swelling?

I had a huge bug bite and i wasnt sure what it was from. It started to get swollen and red so i popped it. Green puss came out of it and then followed my blood, then a clear puss. I cleaned immediatly cleaned with with peroxide , washed it with cetaphil (a non soap cleanser),a rubbing alcohol pad, then witch hazel to prevent itching. I then put on neosporin. Do i have anything to worry about? Its still about swollen. Is there anything i can do about it?

Thanks for query,
You are doing proper things.
Continue the dressing with removing pus every time.
If still pain,swelling persisted you may require antibiotic medicine orally.
Ok and bye.
