I have a insect bite intolerance. Yesterday i had another bite, I'm taking prednison 30 mg p/day (5 days) and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 50 mg. Cooling makes it worse.

In brief: Topical sprays..

Any shortness of breath ? go to the ER. Otherwise, try a topical spray - like the kind used for sunburn which contain lidocaine.
Might bring some relief. Watch for redness & swelling, which could be signs of developing infection.. Best wishes
