Patient :I think I got bit by something. I went outside and when I came inside, my arm was itchy. I scratched at the site, but it just got progressively more itchy. As I put on salve to treat the area, I noticed a dull pain in the entirety of my arm, concentrating in my armpit. It is starting to become tingly and I am feeling some slight tightness of the chest. Are these the symptoms of a serious bug bite?
