except i'm in a foreign country and am scared of trying to go to the doctor, so hi DiS this thread is definitely going to be really productive and helpful right. yesterday i noticed what just seemed like a big annoying mosquito bite, and i have a history of taking a slight allergic reaction to mosquito bites which makes them go really swollen and red, so thought nothing of it. but today it's gone absolutely massive, red swollen spot at least 5cm across and a bit blotchy with a cluster of small hard bumps in the middle so i am a bit concerned... is my arm going to fall off??? it's not sore and only a bit itchy, will it just go away by itself? i'm assuming it's just a more severe allergic reaction than usual but idk. i am in the north of spain (basque country), are there any scary insects here that i have not been made aware of?
