Hi Oly, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
You have had a Wasp sting which causes a allergic reaction which could turn out to be serious if prompt treatment is not given. Kindly visit a ER and get yourself treated as you need emergency medical care as your Ciculatory status should be assessed. You will require local wound care, steroid and anti histaminic medications.

Wish you Good Health and Take Care.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Wasp bite at times leaves its sting and venom at the area of bit. It usually causes a local effect ,but if multiple bites take place then look out for sever allergic reaction.
Firstly you require an oral antibiotic to prevent any secondary infection.Take any anti histaminic tablet orally to take care of the allergy.
Most importantly you require a combination cream of topical steroid and a antibiotic which should be used twice a day till you find improvement.
No specific anti-venom is available ,and treatment is only symptomatic .

It would be advisable if you can consult a skin specialist at your place for proper treatment.
