I have no idea. I was wearing a long sleeve top.. So it was abit strange that I even got bitten! I took a telfast about 30 mins ago! Putting ice on now

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?
Pediatrician: Dr. Yogindra Vasavada, Pediatrician replied 2 years 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.

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.
