Good day and thanks for your question. Sorry about the bite. If the bite has turned to an infection, then you might need to use an antibiotics. But you are 55 and am worried and I suggest you go see a doctor for proper breast check and a mammography to rule out any other problem with the breast.
Hope it helps. Thank you.
