Bite and red streak

I was bit by something during the night. When I woke my wrist itched and had a bump. Now 10 hours later I have a re streak going up my arm from the bite area to just above my elbow. Should I be concerned?

YES! Red streak = very serious infection. See your dr. or go to the ER right away!
