Stung on thigh by wasp. Having redness, itching, swelling in the area. Solution?

Hi, I got stung by a yellow fly(wasp) 3 days ago. I feel dizzy and my right lymp node on my neck is now swollen. My eyes feel heavy as well. The stung part on my thigh is now red, itchy and swollen and has widen to 20cm. I had Zyrtec this morning and I m applying anthistamine on the affected area. Anything else I can do to stop the itching and how long will it take to be back to normal?

Dermatologist 's  Response
You had vector dermatitis initially but now owing to the development of such a big (20 cm) lesion, i think you have developed infection over the area..I would advise you to continue with oral antihistamines and visit a skin specialist so that the area can be examined and proper antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs can be started according to the skin condition...
Hope it helps
