I am gong to Brazil in 2 weeks and the only cloud on the horizon is I have a problem with insect bites, I almost always have a bad reaction in that they swell up badly and always become infected. Last year in Santorini (Greece) i ended up in hospital on a courtesaun drip and given antibiotics and an antihitamine called Xyzal 5mg. I am a diabetic and the drip meant I had to be very careful whislt my bloodsugars were high, I have asked my GP for a course of antibiotics and hydracoutesaun cream to take with me so I can self medicate if badly bitten, I found the xyzal works much better than piriton, can I buy the equivalent of Xyzal here and if I start taking them before I go will it make a differnce if im bitten? i have bought maximum strength jungle formual to ward the mozzies off but Im still paranoid about a bite spoiling my holiday of a lifetime.
Any advice and tips will be greatly appreciated. Thankyou
