Thanks for writing in.
It seems to be a bad case of an insect/scorpion/spider bite. Tablet Motrin 1 tablet taken every 4-6 hours would help reduce the swelling. But I would suggest you go to the ER and get yourself examined. You might need an antivenom and some treatment to reduce the bleeding.
Hope this helps
