I get a systemic allergic reaction each time I get such a bite. Whether it's a small one or large one doesn't seem to matter. It must be the venom that my body reacts to.

I always have to go on prednisone to get the inflammation to subside. Only alternative for me if not to garden anymore and watch use systemic anti-fire ant granules 2X a year.

Anyone else have this rare syndrome? :mad:

** in the title, the word should be Systemic not System
