Thread: Itchy Bites

  1. #1

    Default Itchy Bites

    I seem to have been bitten by something, i'm guessing a mossie as we have quite a few outside our house at the moment, but the bite seems to have gone like little tiny blisters - which i have got from plants i'm allergic to before pg. They have swelled up and gone quite red and really itchy. I saw the first one on my hand, then my neck and the last on my belly.

    Has anyone else had these crazy reactions to insect bites before?

    Are you sure tey are insect bites? I don't want to alarm you, but it may be a rash connected to something else??? Do you have any other symptoms- cold, feeling ill, fever, tummy ache etc If you do, get it checked!
    Hope all is okay!

    everytime I get bitten by a mozzie I always come up with a 'hive' type of spot your body may just be more sensitive to the mozzies while you are pregnant, if you are at all worried though get yourself checked out.

    I did go and get it checked out. Apparently, i'm getting more sensitive to everything - not just emotionally like i thought - i cried at the bank yesterday!! it is wierd though, he said i might have only got one bite somewhere, but my body then overeacts with hives in all sorts of places. Best get the mozzie zapper for this summer then cause i dont know that calamine is going to cut it for long!

    thanks again for your thoughts and concern.
