What causes swollen back?

My husband (33 yrs old) got stung two days ago several times in his lower back by yellow jackets. When he woke up the next morning he is having severe back pain in the muscles across the lower back. There is a large red swollen band that goes from his middle back to his right side.

Hi,Welcome to healthcare magic.After going through your query I think You are suffering from acute backache due to injury. Treatment of it is rest and analgesics . Diclofenac three times a day after meals is effective. Sometimes strong analgesic(such as ultracet three times a day after meals) is required. OMEPRAZOLE 20 MG before meals prevent acidity caused by analgesics .To further investigate MRI of the region is advised. I think your query answered.Welcome to any follow up query
