Bugs have irritants in their poison which cause allergic reactions by type 1 hypersensitivities mostly.
when ever an insect bites
one should promptly grab an ice over the site of the bite, to reduce the blood supply to that site and thus decresing systemic spread plus decreasing the inflammation.
Now for itching you are doing good to take benadryl
. But better option was to go to ER straight and had a combination of ANtihistamines and cortico steroids
. this would have spared you alot of trouble.
no worries even then, your liver is working it off to detoxify. you will be fine soon, but if you notice any unusual symtomp like bleeding from any site, or rashes, or purpuraes, or patechiaes, or unconsciousness
or decreased blood pressure , you should hurry to ER then . you would need a little help then but it wont come to that trust me. Keep using benadryl and get a dexamethasone injection and inject in muscle 12 hours a part at least twice
