Welcome to ATD. Thank you for the query.
Try following measures for a faster relief:-
Ice the area.
For pain, take an over-the-counter painkiller like acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
For itchiness, take an antihistamine. You can also apply a mixture of baking soda and water or calamine lotion.
It might take 2-5 days for the area to heal. Keep it clean to prevent infection.
Consult a physician in person if you have any of the following :-
Feelings of faintness or dizziness
A history of severe allergy reaction to insect stings
Hope this helps. Take care.
