A mild allergic reaction to a mosquito’s saliva causes a small itchy welt that usually gets better within 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 give bacteria a way to get in and cause infection.
Try these tips for allergy relief when you’re on vacation or traveling on
Travel Insurance: Check pollen counts at your destination. Pack your
own hypoallergenic pillow cover and allergy medicine in a carry-on bag.
No Venting: On road trips, keep the air vent closed. You'll breathe
recirculated air, not pollen or pollution.
Smart Car: Take a vacuum to your car. Pollen and dust mites can
easily cling to clothing, bringing more allergens into your home.
