Swollen welt due to a bite, hurts more than itching. Took triple antibiotic, no help. Immediate reliever ?

I apparently got bit by something yesterday afternoon in the woods riding around on a side-by-side. Later that evening and still later, it swelled and swelled... The welt is now about the size of a tennis ball. It s red, inflamed, hurts more than itches and it s on fire! I have left it alone and put triple antibiotic and alcohol on it.... Nothing yet...
