Insect bite, swollen calf, star-like shape bruising. Taking injections to treat varicose veins. Treatment?

It felt like a bite at the back of my calf followed by instant swelling . When I got home I discovered a huge star-like shape bruising. I do have varicose like veins on the side of my leg which were treated with injections years ago. It has been about three days now and the swelling is going down and not painful, so am assuming nothing to worry about, although my neighbour has suggested travelling by plane may be an issue.

Hello if you have an insect bit, first thing you have to know which insect bite. If it is an unknown bite, please consult physician and undergo detail physical examination and check blood parameters particularly platelet count, clotting and bleeding time, total and differential leucocyte counts, haemoglobin, renal parameters. I hope you understood my suggestion, get well soon. thank you.
