Hello,
Thanks for posting a query.
If you are sure that the pain is due to insect or bee bite then you can have
TAB. VOVERON 1 tab twice daily for 2 days and TAB. LEVOCETRIZINE 1 tab now and in the night.
If its not an insect bite then it could be due to infection of nail bed which will need an antibiotic.

Take care.
