Sorry Scottishgal, will end the conversation here.
One hint though for those discussing an allergic reaction to being bitten. – Research shows that our bodies need Omega 3 to help it shut down a histamine reaction to anything we are allergic to. – Increasing levels of linseed (or flax to those across the pond) in the diet, or oily fish on a BSD diet could be helping with that.
Hope that is close enough to being on topic for people.
