Pea sized lump after getting stung on the neck. Is this ok ?

My little boy got stung on the neck by something this morning we pulled the sting out and the area is not swelled just has a pin prick size cut there but about 2 cms away from that there seems to be a pea sized lump under the skin, it isn t hot to touch and doesn t cause any discomfort when I press there, there isn t a lump on the other side so I m not sure if this is normal

Hi kaye.clifford,
This pea sized lump on the area of insect bite is ok. This lump is formed due to inflammatory fluids which got collected it will behave like you mentioned, it is normal. If he has any itching or rashes he may need antihistaminic or with steroid for which consult your physician
