Hi Lita Gemi.. Thank you for the questions given.
Swelling in the legs can interfere with activities and walking. One of the causes of swollen feet is due to insect bites. Insect bites such as bee bites can cause several effects. A mild reaction is the emergence of pain, small bumps, a little swelling at the bite mark. A moderate reaction is an enlarged swelling around the insect bite and the sting marks will be reddish in color. It can last 5-10 days. Meanwhile, severe reactions occur in people who are allergic to substances present in insects. Patients may faint, pale, difficult to breathe, itching.
What you are experiencing is an inflammatory reaction where there is swelling, pain, redness, feeling warm. If the swelling enlarges, feels pain, the body has a fever then you can see a doctor. The doctor can perform a physical examination directly and the doctor can provide the right treatment.
Meanwhile what you can do:
Cold compresses on the swollen area to reduce pain and swelling Put the foot up If it hurts you can take paracetamol in accordance with the dose Avoid scratching and rubbing the swollen part Hopefully useful
