I am heading into spring and summer with a rock-and-a-hard-spot decision to make. Last year, after months of fighting corn allergy, I began to react badly to bug bites. Spider bites turned into tennis ball sized, painful and itching swellings that took about two weeks to go down and left scars. Mosquito bites were torture. It seems I was a mosquito magnet, with over twenty spots on me at a time, all large and swollen. Any bug bite would break open and ooze. I am buying mosquito netting soon, and stocking up on essential oils to dilute and spray on bedding and clothing to repel bugs. I used enough Benadryl over time to experience its most nasty symptoms - including a break with reality. I tracked it back to the Benadryl quickly, and was okay in about four days. Not fun at all. Not doing that ever again, occasional use only. MCS has been one of my worst symptoms the past three years or more, but - To those of you here who have MCS, do I dare spray for bugs, or set off a bug bomb in my apartment? Those bites were torture. Which is worse, increased weakness from the extra chemicals, or suffering from bites? I really do not know. I am thinking avoiding the bites would be the greater relief.
