Gnats....argh!

During this current warm weather an old problem has recurred....
Getting bitten!
Because of the skin cancer I had last year I no longer sit out soaking up the rays like I used to do. But I still have to go out in it so I use sun bloc...but that seems to attract the biting community!
Yesterday I wore a loose top which has a wide neck.
This morning I itch!
Several large itchy lumps decorate my neck area.
I am rubbing them automatically as I get myself into the shower.
This morning I have my gardener offering to spray everything in sight. But I am not convinced that this will do the trick or even if it did whether it is alright!
I know that I found one lot of chemicals in the shed which have been banned for years....he was saving them!
I got rid of them but suspect that if I go around spraying it would give him the green light!
So before I go out with his tea I must cover myself up! No itchy lumps will be on display!
Bless him!

  1. There would appear to be two basic 'types' of human being, those who get bitten and those who don't.
    Like you I seem to attract every known species of cannibal/carnivore on the planet.
    Never a sun worshipper and with excema to add to my problems I try to avoid the great outdoors in summer.
    Have you tried taking anti-histamines throughout the warmest months? It helps me quite a bit.
