Skin inflammation

A wasp/hornet stung me on my arm and arm is swollen due to it. I took medicine from pharmacy. Okacet tablet and Quadrichoice cream to apply. It stung me about 12 hours back and I had a tablet and applied the ointment. The swelling is there still and paining. How much time does it generally take to heal? Should I take medicine for more time.
