Hi, I am 40 years old I’ve been thinking about when all this started for me which was around 10 years ago... I am a Golf course manager Greenkeeper and I remember in the summer of 2011-12 it was hot summer and I vividly remember I kept getting bitten on the fore arms by cleggs or horse flys, it was relentless they just kept coming for me and even when others were around me they kept coming for me it was ever since then that my Bechets seemed to develop, my fore arms just kept coming out in big pussy spots right through that winter long after the cleggs had gone, needless to say my symptoms also developed into Ulcers and body flare ups... the reason I’m posting this is the current hot summer has brought the cleggs back again and I have again been bitten continuously and my body flare ups are out of control!!!
I honestly think these clegg bites triggered a response in my immune system a decade ago and has been out of control ever since, and now seeing the reaction I’m getting to the new bites has me convinced this was my primary trigger.
Anyone that has any thought on this please share.
