Hello, What insect bit you? Please apply ice over the lump and take benadryl for any itching you have.

Any poisonous saliva injected will take a day or two to get dispersed and detoxified. Please visit ER if you feel symptoms like dizziness or fast heartbeats, nausea etc.

Ok thanks! Do you think I should go to the dr tomorrow to check it out?
Expert:  Dr. Yogindra Vasavada replied 1 year ago.

You are welcome. Only if the lump is still painful and does not seem to fade or you have yellow tip over the swelling. That may need consultation for possible pus formation. Good luck.
