I was stung by a wasp and the sting swelled up to the size of an apple.


Hi,
Does "the sting swelled up ..." in the above sound right to you? I think it's odd so I tend to rewrite it as "the stung part swelled up ..." Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.

    Hi,
    'sting' here is equal to 'the bitten place', so it just swelled up. 'Sting' may not be only one's sting like a bee sting, but also a wound made by a stinger.
