I was bit by some kind of insect about 1.5 wks ago and had a skin reaction surrounding the bite and it was itchy. I saw my allergist and they gave me zyrtec and prednisone. It cleared up pretty quick, but then this past weekend, I broke out in random hives/rashes on my body...I checked with my allergist and they said to see my pcp, so tomorrow, I have an appt to see my pcp tomorrow..any ideas on what it could be? After effect of insect bite?? I'm still itchy after taking Benadryl :-(. Ugh!!!
