I am having a nasty summer when it comes to bug bites. Last year I was bitten by spider. Due to an allergic reaction to the bite I almost ended up in the hospital. In the long run, I ended up treating it with medication that cost me more than the hospital stay would have cost. (Insurance would have at least covered the hospital stay!)
So, I ended last summer with a scar on my foot from a nasty bite I do not care to repeat!
This summer I have had insect difficulties too. This year, however, it has not been from spiders; but rather from mosquitoes! Now, have you ever heard of an adult having an allergic reaction to mosquito bites? Yet, I have had 3 different bites bring about intense swelling, redness and pain! I have been thankful that I still had some of the$60.00 cream they gave me last year for the spider bites! I have had to keep Benadryl on hand and take it several times to help manage the reactions.
If it is not one thing, it is another. So, as I pack - I itch and apply expensive cream. Then at night I take the Benadryl and head to bed for a night of deep sleep. Needless to say, I have not been all that eager to step outside after dark - I don't want to get eaten alive - literally.
Trust your summer has been itch free for the most part. If not, I know of some great cream you can get - you will just have to mortgage your house to obtain it!
