Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your query, it seems that you might have suffered from soft tissue injury.
You can take anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen twice a day after meals along with an antacid.

Other possibility can be an insect bite for which you can add an antihistamine like Fexofenadine 120 mg along with the above medications.

You should get yourself first clinically examined before starting any medication.

I hope this is helpful to you.
