Wasp Sting - swollen hand, cellulitis

My friend was stung by a wasp on his little finger 2 days ago and immediately took Apis 30x. The swelling reduced significantly by the following morning. He continued taking a dilution of Apis 30x three more times that day, with the swelling remaining minimal until about 2:00 pm. After that the swelling increased between the little and ring fingers, then progressively spread over the top of the hand. The swelling is accompanied by heat and itchiness and a numbness of the little finger. After this, he stopped taking the Apis in fear that he was making his condition worse. Should he continue taking the Apis, maybe at a stronger potency, or switch to another remedy? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
