A mild allergic reaction to a mosquito’s saliva causes a small itchy welt that usually gets better within a few hours. But if you are highly sensitive, symptoms can last for several days. The small welt can develop into an itchy sore the size of a quarter.
It’s tough advice, but the best thing you can do is not scratch the bite. Scratching can create an opening in your skin that can allow bacteria in and cause infection.
If you suffer with allergy symptoms, you know all about the stress of having a chronic condition. Not only is it difficult to breathe with allergy symptoms, but poor sleep can lead to fatigue and problems concentrating. Allergy medicines can cause appetite changes, low energy, and even irritability. All you want is relief: from the stress, the symptoms, all of it.
