Many years ago if I received a midge bite it wouldn’t even register. Now when I get bitten I react pretty badly with lots of swelling and inevitability a great deal of itching.

I’ve spent the last few days up on the North West of Scotland and the midge have been out in force. They must follow Unsponsored as they were there waiting for me. Despite whatever potion or poison used to try and prevent the little beasties attacking I have been bitten.

Midge Bite Relief

However this time things have been a little different. I have used Nelson Arnicare Cooling gel on the bites, and all signs of itchiness disappeared almost instantly, I haven’t reacted as badly and the heal time has been much improved.

So I have just ordered some more for my kits bags.
