Soooooooooooo.....I don't know what your bites are, but appreciate your post. Mine have a bite in the center of a very large round circle, no blood, but a white dot in the center of the bite. One of them is already bruising - from scratching - and the one on my leg is the only one that is the size of a baseball, must have gotten into my blood.
Taking Benadryl and trusting the process. Also massive dosages of vitamin C.
The aloe and the tea tree oil helped me with the itching, even though they're only topicals. I used both to do a comparison - Aloe wins for me hands down.
Hope your heal soon.
I don't know what it is and all I can tell you that might be of assistance is that I went to the pharmacy across from PJs a couple of months ago, as I was swelling up severely from a bee sting and I simply showed them and they gave me some anti histamine pills (don't remember the name) and anti inflammatory pills as well.Where are the palm trees?
Am I better? Nothing physically has changed yet, but knowing the funeral has been postponed helps a lot. And I'm relieved I don't have numbered days to go.
Haven't been able to get Benadryl in town - 2 of the pharmacies I went to didn't have it. One gave me something similar - the only thing I can read on the back (since they cut two off for me) is a word that ends in "na" DF 10. Now I can imagine what DF stands for but I dont think it's accurate for the medication.
Are you familiar with this round white tablet?
I believe from my own experience with Prednisone(taken for pericarditis), that you start off by taking a little then build up and slowly reduce your dose. Like climbing a hill then going down the other side, otherwise you can have some serious issues.Kaki
Thanks for your input. I got prednizone -never took it before - and am starting the regime. The pharmacy told me I can take two a day, one every 12 hours; so I am hopeful my experience will be just like yours! I'm already seeing the swelling dissipate and the itching is much subdued.
The pharmacy told me to take 1 every 12 hours - which I have done 2 pills so far. I already see improvement so I'll probably only take one more and then be done. I'm not one for medication, or overmedicating.
