Cripes! The bitey things obviously like runners' blood.
Have to agree with antihistamine tablets. Two days of cream and
tablets and the bite was almost gone. However, I now have a lovely bruise as evidence. I think the other thing that helps is to avoid touching or itching the area otherwise it just reignites the histamine reaction.
Went out for a 7 miler last night and all's well.
Good luck with the stings/bites ... I guess it's just another hazard we runners have to put up with.
