Have you been stressed a lot lately?  I know a lot of stress comes with wedding planning, plus jobs, and any other big life changes.  Stress can do a lot of crazy things to the body.  I feel like I’m constantly in stress with law school, and my body finds fun new ways to react to the stress every semester.  I’ve also heard of people allergy free their whole lives, then with one big event they’re suddenly allergic to everything.  Even if its not stress related, I’d go talk to a doctor if I were you.  And sorry, I don’t really know of a good bug spray, I always just pick whatevers at thee drug store haha.

I also have crazy allergies.  I suggest you go to an allergy DR and get the full panel.  At least then you’ll know what you are dealing with and can figure out what you need to do to help yourself.  In the meantime, take advil when you have a bad reaction – it helps with inflammation.  I’d start taking something like claritan every day.

Get foods tested too. Do you have any food allergies?  I have allergies to things like peanuts and oats that I didn’t know about until much later in life.  They aren’t Epipen crazy death allergies, but I will get eczema and swell up like a beast if I eat something bad.  It’s crazy.

Some people do develop allergies as an adult. I didnt have allergies as a child but developed several allergies as an adult. I dont have health insurance either so I know how it is. This is what I have been doing first buy some OFF it has to have deet in it thats the best when you are outside. You also should take zyrtec or claritin (walmart sells claritin cheep) you should always have some benadryl on hand as well as a hydrocortisone anti itch cream. All of this is OTC and not very expensive at all. I have been able to manage my allergies very well using all of these. When you get insurance you should go have an allergy test done
