Re: Why are my feet like this???

It's from the bites. They will cause swelling. You could try an antihistamine but am not sure it owuld do too much good. You may need a steroid shot. You could also try soacking them in warm - not hot - water with baking soda in it. Or maybe a cortisone cream would be helpful.
