no if you suspect it as insect bite, you should take steroid, antihistaminic and if in pain take analgesics. which is respectively prednisolone, chlorpheniramine maleate and aceclofenac. as you are applying the antibiotic cream no other antibiotics are required. I am mentioning here a pharmacological name you should look for the appropriate local brands in your area after consulting your family physician.
