I was stung last night on my left thigh. It is swollen and red from my hip to my knee in front and back. It is twice the size of my right leg. There is pain sitting or standing.

3 days ago my 11 year old son was stung by a large wasp. He has been stung before, but has never had a reaction like this one. In the beginning it looked like a normal sting. Now it has a huge purple area surrounding the sting and it also has heat on it. I looked fine until today when it turned that color. I am getting worried. you very much.
