Bug Bite After Efffects, Help!

I went to urgent care for a swollen painful arm. Turns out it was a bug bite. My swelling and pain was reduced but the pain is still lingering in my wrist, and is now throbbed in all my joints. Everywhere it hurts there are small inflammation markers. I finished antibiotics 3 days ago and steroids 5 days ago.

Should I go back to urgent care or wait and see if the meds keep working?

Hello~If the pain doesn't stop in the next few days, then definitely go back to the doctor, you may still have some infection and need another antibiotic.
