Thanks for posting your query.
The insect bite you had more than 24 hours ago is not likely to cause the gastric upset and headache you are having now.
Your symptoms are likely to be related to acute gastritis.
Drugs like omeprazole and antacids along with prokinetic drugs like domperidone/itopride should help you in improving the symptoms.
You can get these from your nearest pharmacy. The symptoms are likely to subside in a day or two. Be careful to avoid any hot and spicy food, alcohol and coffee. Do take plenty of fluids orally to prevent any dehydration.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
