has anyone had reaction bug bites reactions such as welts? i have had both chemo and radiation and didn't know if it was caused from one of the treatments and never had this issue but since treatments. I am a survivor of 3 years out.  Wondering if either treatments would be related to why i react

Not sure, all I remember is right after surgery they told me to always guard against bug bites, etc., to protect from getting lymphadema...i.e. if the bite got infected, etc.  Sorry I can't be of more help.  I have had one bite of some sort on the side of my cancer, in the arm, and it did get a little red welt on it, and I kept it very clean and used alcohol on it.
