Brief Answer:
NO need to be worried!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

This is normal inflammatory response following the bite. There are no signs of active infection. Cleansing the area daily and avoiding constant picking would be okay. There is no need for antibiotics at this time. For the pains and itches, I recommend tylenol and benadryl. Otherwise, all is okay.

Send another image in 48hours for review and more insights.

I wish you well.
