Swollen and extremely painful foot extending to the calf, observed a bug bite on icing it. Worrisome?

My foot became swolled and extremely painful. As I was sitting through my 93min. Plane ride, the pain and achyness extended up my calf and made my whole lower leg, back of the heal and around the arch of my foot miserably painful. Now that im icing it, i see a big bug bite which is red on the outside. Should I be concerned?

Hi, Mickigoles.
Thanks for query.
from your history it suggests that due to bug bite there is some allergic reaction giving rise to infection and cellulitis resulting painful swollen leg.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine for 2-3 days and one course of antibiotic and anti inflammatory medicines.
Ok and bye.
