Thanks everyone. I am a nurse myself and I have also seen the reactions develop over time with meds - and given the worsening of the bites that's what made me worry. I am still undecided - it was just a BB gp that I went to so I might go and ask a GP that I know and trust for their opinion on the blood tests. The blisters on the bite broke yesterday so now it's just a sore but that is a good 5 days later!

Ds1 gets bad reactions to mozzie bites. They go hard, red and swell to about a 20c-50c coin size. He scratches them till they become sores too. I give him polarmine antihistamine as soon as I notice them and dab them with pinetarsol if they are bothering him. That combination seems to help slightly and he doesn't seem so uncomfortable. I also put some pinetarsol in the bath if he has a few mozzie bites at once.
