58 age blood pressure pills and that took a Benadryl.
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, you should apply cool compresses with an ice pack.

And clean the area with betadine solution.

And afterward, apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with bacitracin ointment twice a day.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin for few days.

You can take Amoxicillin if your swelling, pain, tenderness are increasing.

You can update your tetanus status if you hadn't received for last 10 years.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
