i have just been bitten or stung by a large unseen insect on the back of my neck. i know it wasn't a spider because it buzzed and flew. i don't want to sound like a total spaz, but let's just say there was a lot of screaming and thrashing and therefore i didn't actually lay eyes on the bug at any point.

there's a raised red welt on the back of my neck now (i can't see it myself for obvious reasons but my husband confirmed its presence) and it burns like holy fire. i've taken antihistimine and acetaminophen and i've been holding a pack of ice to it for an hour.

still, it burns. and aches. and generally feels pretty painful.

i need bug bite advice. what do i do to make it stop hurting?????
