Currently in Italy, and have been bitten by mosquitoes. Worse ones are on my leg, huge bubbles I burst this morning.
Would this be worth a visit to walk in tomorrow when home?
Shall attach pics, thanks for advice

Hi. Please get medical attention for this. It looks painful.

Your medical insurance should cover things like this.

I am returning to UK within next 12 hours, so can see doctor when I am home, have had reactions but never like this with a bubble, wont stop oozing, have covered with gauze and applied bandage to keep clean
Many thanks for reply

Have you taken any antihistamine? You should. Anything over the counter like Piriton or shops own brand.

Yes, been taking anti allergy tablets for last 24 hours, just a generic supermarket type

You poor thing! That is a bad reaction. I'd get some antiseptic spray on that then keep it covered.

Also see how you feel when you get home but make sure someone is keeping a close eye on you incase you get further symptoms.

I was advised to use ice on bites; wrapped in something obvs - will help take the heat out of them...looks very painful
