??? used Bug Bite! It's super-effective!

I just got home from the hospital.
This morning I was helping my dad out in the shed, shifting timber and whatnot, and it seems at some point I got bitten by an as-of-yet unknown critter. Now, I've always had a tendency to swell up spectacularly whenever bugs decide my body is an ideal storage facility for their toxins, but never have I reacted as I did today. I don't know what bit me, but it meant business.
I don't think it was a red-back (one of Australias deadliest, and most prolific arachnids) because I didn't even notice it for about 2 hours, but in the 8 or so hours since I noticed the bite, my forearm has grown a good 12cm welt around the bite. I can feel my muscles moving beneath the swelling.
So yeah, I've been prescribed antihistemines, and have scored tomorrow (at least) off work. It's not deadly, bit it sure is impressive.
