I went running last night. A whole 1.3mi in 16min and I came home with 34 mosquito bites. This is not an exaggeration. I tried to take pictures of my back to share with you, but it didn't work as I had hoped. I won't break down the number of bites per body surface area, just know I'm covered and last night looked like I had hives. I showered ASAP and covered myself with AfterBite. As usual, the bites still itched, and I still had the nausea. I have bites through the shorts I was wearing, through the socks I had on, and somehow I have an ankle bite that was not only through my socks, but under the rim of my shoe.
This mosquito shit is growing quite old.
On my right arm I have a lump right below my elbow, about the size of the palm of my left hand. It's hot to touch, soft, and right next to a rather small looking mosquito bite. The lump is clearly filled with mosquito venom.
I'm ready to rip my skin off.
I bought some Benadryl cream, and it's helping the bites on my back (which were done through the shirt I was wearing, by the way) and a couple bites on my legs. The rest of the bites are itching like mad.
Again, I'm COVERED in BENADRYL cream. And it STILL itches!
Allow me to reiterate.
|Still Not Cute.|
|Not At All Cute.|
|NOT FUCKING CUTE!|
Does anyone else have a horrific mosquito allergy? Please advise!
