About two weeks ago I suffered from an anaphylactic reaction to a fire ant bite that landed me in the emergency room now ever since anytime I get bit by anything I get a rash about the size of a quarter around the bite. I have been bitten many times before and never really had this problem, will this reaction go away over time or will I now always get a rash.
The earlier bite cause an antien antibody reaction. The immune system of the body woke up to this antigen and regarded it as foreign in nature or not belonging to the body. Now the effect is coming as delayed hypersensitivity reaction of the body to this antigen caused by your immune cells and hence the bites started itching and swelling again when there is another bite.
You should take plenty of water and take antiallergic drugs like Montekulast or levocetrizine after consulting your family physician as these are prescriptions drugs.
