Slept in hotel, woke up later with bites all over me, started to swell and turn red. Got cortisone shot, elimite (permethrin) and prednisone from doctor. How long?
Pretty aggressive treatment so I will assume it was moderate allergic reaction. Inflammation should improve over a period of a 3-5 days with all those steroids. Enclosing a good article. Be sure to check your luggage and clothes worn in that hotel in case you brought home a few "friends". Good luck!
