Immense pain emerging from arm due to bug, eased with cold water, is persistent with redness, itchy bumps. Remedy?

I was playing footbal when I got an imense pain coming from my arm , where i saw a bug that i ve never seen before. I put some cold water on my arm and some of the pain passed away, even though it was still there. 2 days later, around the bite of this insect, my arm is completely red and bumpy, itchy too. Any advice on what I should do?

It seems to be a bug bite or an insect bite. You should take Tablet Benadryl 1 tablet twice daily for atleast a week. This will make you sleepy. So if you cant afford that, take Tablet Allegra 180 mg 1 tablet in the daytime and benadryl tablet in the night time.
Also, apply calamine lotion and keep the area clean. This should take about 1-2 weeks to resolve completely
