Do mosquito bites cause a golf-ball size swelling in your arm? Do ant bites cause you to itch that spot for a week?
Well, if you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, chances are that you have an allergic reaction to one or more of them.
As a little boy, growing up in Canada, I never, ever suspected that it was an allergic reaction that I was getting. The mosquito bites were my worse reaction. Not only did they cause golf-ball size welts in my arms or legs, but the itching! My Lord, the itching would literally go on for two weeks straight. I would scratch and scratch until they bled, then I would not scratch them anymore. Until the healing started, which would cause them to get extremely itchy again. So, I would scratch and scratch until the scab broke off and I would still scratch the open wound until it would grow a little bit bigger!
And to all parents out there, it really does not matter whether you tell your child to leave it alone, “Do not scratch it otherwise it will just make it worse!” I am telling this to all parents, the scratchy feeling is so great that we cannot help but to scratch it. It is like putting candy beside a child and telling her that she is not allowed to take it. We all know what will happen to that candy. It is the same thing that happens with mosquito bites.
That was then and this is now. I have been rebalanced for these mosquito bites and low and behold I do not get those golf-ball size lumps anymore. In fact, they are just mini-bumps that last all but half a day. To all those insect bite sufferers out there, including those that suffer the same consequences as I did due to ant bites, I want you to know that there is a better life out there.
We had a 12 year old boy who loved white water rafting. I mean, this was just about all he did during the summer months. When he was rafting, he would often get bitten by mosquitoes. Just like me, his bumps would swell up and he would scratch them for about a week. His mother heard about what I could do about mosquito bites and immediately checked him in. After only one session with me, he was able to enjoy the white water rafting again as his mosquito bites would not itch and they would last him only about an hour!
