Reaction to a bite - extremely swollen foot!

Patient

Q: Hi
I have been bitten by something on my feet, it happened on Sunday but... My left foot is slightly swollen and my right foot is twice the size.
There is a white ring on my leg as the swelling increasing up my leg but my foot has started to change colour.
It's painful to walk on and extremely itchy/uncomfortable in general... I do have a doctors appointment tomorrow, but is there anything I can do now?
