I was just outside walking with DS when I heard a buzzing and some insect stung me on the top of my head : I don't know what kind of insect it might have been. It hurt a lot, but I have no reaction to it. It's in an inaccessible place so I don't know whether the sting is in there or not, have to wait for someone to show up so they can have a look. In the meantime, is it ok to continue breastfeeding DS? Is the venom, if any, a consideration?

It is absolutely fine to continue breastfeeding. Even if you did have a reaction, it wouldn't be a problem for breastfeeding.
