Re: Worried about a bug bite
No, you don't have to worry because it is gone. Itching and scratching will always make a bite bug worse. Sometimes though you can have a reaction to the bite and if it is red and swollen that can be the peak of the reaction and then it slows down and goes away.
For the next time you should take benadryl if necessary, it helps. Ironically the same thing happened to my uncle last week he got a bite on his left hand and had the same reaction as you, it did eventually go away.
