Hello
 
I had asthma and ezcema as a kid - mostly gone - suspected food allergies.
 
I had a stress full time recently. ( Now 40 ish )
 
I had reflux and I was bitten by a mosquito six time right side.
 
I started to hurt under my glands, and then ezcema started to flare up big time
 
Tried all the antihistamines, polaramine sort of worked.
 
Steroid creams, body washes, tar etc Started taking vitamin D ( winter starts )
 
3 weeks now. Off to dermatologist. Was eating alot of cheese and museli bars and chocolate.
 
Stopped drinking coke - re reflux
 
I am wondering if the mosquito bites just pushed my immune system over the edge.
 
Recovery is slow

Welcome to the forum, Andy.

I have no idea what the mosquito might have been carrying or if it had anything to do with your problems. Are there reports of any diseases from mosquitoes in your area?

You could have developed new allergies. That's common. You might start keeping a food journal with times and your symptoms. That helps with finding food intolerances. Avoiding foods you don't tolerate helps with reflux and skin (your biggest organ).

I wouldn't treat anything serious without consulting a doctor.

Best wishes, and keep us informed on your progress.
