- Have allergic reaction to mosquito bites I.e. need intravenous + oral antibiotics, but by not wearing perfume and applying this to exposed flesh managed to avoid getting bitten on holiday in Lesvos this year and Turkey last year.
- Last year got purpley dotty rash on both shins and put it down to reaction to sun as it disappeared quite quickly on return to UK. This year made sure washed shins with soap before sunbathing.....still got rash but not as dark in colour and again disappeared very quickly on return home......better than getting bitten! Didn't happen on arms or neck area......strange!
