i have a stinging sensation on the inside of my thigh, it started four days ago, though it was a bee sting but there are no visible marks, now it has extended from the groin to the knee, is this a nerve or a skin problem?

Thanks for providing additional information.
As per your description,Stinging/tingling sensation/numbness in thigh is suggestive of nerve compression at lumbosacral spine.
And you should try oral analgesic like Advil 200 mg every 6 hourly and apply topical analgesic like Diclofenac sodium containing ointment on affected area.
Physical therapy can be effective in your case.
Avoid prolonged hours of sitting and standing in same position.
If your symptoms'll not improve in a week then it's good to see your family doctor or Orthopedist for proper evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.
