Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would like to suggest that you should take an antihistamine like Cetrizine 10 mg once daily along with painkiller like Ibuprofen twice daily after meals.
If pus is developing in the area, you should take an antibiotic like Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily.

I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated.

I hope this is helpful to you.
