Extreme itching on face, ears, eyes, arms. Stung by a bee. Advice?

I was stung by a bee in the neck area while on holiday in Mexico last spring. Ever since then I have had extreme itching on my face ears and eyes. The itching is also on my upper arms. Sores have appeared on my arms and will take weeks to heal. What is the cause and what can I do to get rid of the itch. Can the itch be related to the bee sting

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Insect bites usually cause immediate type of allergy which is seen within 24-48 hours. There is less likely chances of that causing itching now. There are many causes of itching with rashes. I suggest you get a dermatologist opinion for the sores/rash. Tab Atarax 25 mg twice daily for a week can be taken for the itching.
Thanks.
