Off and on for about a month I have been troubled by the odd and occasional bug bite. My reactions have been dramatic. In one case my cheek was so swollen that the doctor who I was seeing for an unrelated reason, was giving me all sorts of instructions for a possible emergency visit to ER. I was very puzzled. Why was he talking about an ER visit – my appointment with him was about something quite routine. Why was he so worried? That was the morning after the bite on my cheek and my face was quite distorted!
When I have actually seen bugs here in the apartment they have made me think of fruit flies.
