    I suffer with lots of insect bites in the summer, over the years my skin reaction has become a red swelling with itchiness. I use neem cream and Tea Tree Oil. Do you think taking a natural antihistamine may help ?

      Hello Shirley, Using Neem cream and Tea Tree oil along with a natural antihistamine like Nettle will help insect bites.

      Rachel, thank you so much for that advice, I will definitely try Nettle antihistamine.
