Stinging on the knee followed by inflammation, soreness on getting up, swelling around knee and ankle. Suggestion?

Hi I believe i was bitten by something on the knee while gardening 4 days ago, it appears i had a sting still left in my knee which i removed 36 hours ago. My knee has become inflamed and sore especially when getting up after sitting down. I dont have any other syptoms except for feeling slightly off. Swelling is localised around knee and have slight swelling around ankle.

Hi, Andy.
Thanks for query.
It seems that you got some poisonous insect bite.
Take anti histamin like Cetrizine table twice a day for 2-3 days.
If you get more swelling or pain then go for an antibiotic medicne course.
Ok and bye.
