What you seem to be having seems like cellulitis. Cellulitis is an infection of the deep subcutaneous tissue of the skin.Insect bite is a common cause of cellulitis. Skin on the face or lower legs is most commonly affected by this infection.
Cellulitis is characterized by redness, swelling, warmth, and pain or tenderness.Diagnosis is by clinical examination and blood cultures. Treatment consists of resting the affected limb or area, cleaning the wound site if present (with debridement of dead tissue if necessary) and treatment with oral antibiotics, except in severe cases, which may require admission and intravenous (IV) therapy.

I feel that you should consult a physician and get yourself prescribed for antibiotics.It is also important to distuinguish cellulitis from lyme’s disease which can be done only after examination and blood testing.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
I have a soft lump of both insteps that come and go. Sometimes one will swell more than the other and be uncomfortable. What would cause that?
