I was stung by a wasp as I woke up 13 hours ago and came out

This answer was rated:

I was stung by a wasp as I woke up 13 hours ago and came out in a rash all over my chest and began to feel on edge but this is due to my major health anxiety problem hence why I’m even writing this now, but I’ve noticed I’ve started to develop a sore throat when I swallow I’m not feeling out of breath yet but I’m concerned this is going to be a late anaphylactic shock.
I’ve never had one before and this is also my first time being stung by a wasp any help please?

My sore throat is gradually getting worse I’ve noticed is this anything to be concerned about?

Nothing to be concerned about

Just take ibuprofen

I don’t have any ibuprofen at the moment but I’m guessing I don’t need it realistically if it’s nothing to be concerned about
