About 5 weeks ago I was bitten by a mosquito on my hand and had a bad reaction (what I called bad) in that the top of my hand swelled up, red all across it and took several days for it to go down. It was more days before the tenderness on top of hand to leave. About 5 days after that I began having swelling around both ankles, even taking Lasix and all lab tests for other underlying problems were normal.
I had just gotten back from 3 weeks overseas, been on a 12 hour flight, and then the mosiquito bite and a hormone shot......so all this at first I thought could have blamed the swelling. My doctor ran dopplar studies on legs, thyroid recheck, liver test, xrays of feet, uric acid, and BUN...all negative. Am now on 60 mg of Lasix for 5 days and to go back for more lab if have any swelling then for more lab to be done.
Doing search online I read about Skeeter Syndrome because I am having pretty bad reactions from mosquito bites now. Last night one bit me on my neck and I have a huge knot and quite large red area that I applied a cortisone cream on 2 times. It is sore to touch or move my neck.
I have never had any problems before like this....anyone else have some suggestions?
