So we talk about the joys of summer v lupus. Covering up whilst others are in the sun, looking purple due to sun factor 50 , wearing silly hats( I have big ears) , the heat, swelling oh the swelling, but Gnats! This year I have battled with ankle swelling due to heat and poor drainage, also my reactions to allergens have got worse. An example; I react to shell fish and Damon yesterday vomiting and the runs due to "fish fingers". But gnats have got worse. I react each time, becoming watery and weeping. When bitten on the swollen ankle it turn into the beginning of an ulcer despite antibiotics. My husband bought what I can only describe as napalm in a spray. Still didn't work.
Anyone else finding gnats a problem.
