Unusually, I was badly bitten last year. Thought it was heading for cellulitis! Chemist gave me steroid cream (instead of Antisan), tablets to take every 4/6 hours instead of once a day antihistamine. So when we went on our annual family jolly to Menorca i took all the above AND Jungle Formula, Avons Skin so Soft and anklet and bracelets too. They worked-hurrah! Now this year DH and I are getting bitten to death despite all of the above! The little blighters! Anyone else?
Ah I feel your pain Newquay; they blot my summer's too. Like you, I've got Jungle Formula, little yellow bracelets they were useless, Skin so Soft, a spray of stuff from the chemist and I wear so much all encompassing clothing that I might just as well wear a duffle coat! Insect bites always turn nasty and infected on me and I've had to have antibiotic creams and tablets on several occassions. I even ended up in hospital one summer when i got bitten on the face and my airways became so swollen that I couldn't breathe properly. When you find a solution, send me a pm please.
