I have had allergic reactions several times to insect bites. The reaction was swelling and itching and burning. This weekend, I got bitten and my leg swelled to double it's size! I had egg sized lumps on my leg. I've once had a rash raised one inch that covered my entire stomach. My GP said I should carry Piriton incase I get bitten and take it straight away. I did this time but still ended up at the emergency GP surgery and needed stronger antihistamines. Would it be a major over-reaction to get a medic alert bracelet?
