Hello...yesterday, while working in the yard for 1/2 hour, I got approximately 42 mosquito bites on my legs. This morning, they're very swollen & painful & I was wondering if they're made worse because of Celiac Disease?
Thank you...

I don't know about any link between celiac disease and mosquito bites, but I know that any skin reaction (such as allergic rash) gets worse (redder, more swollen, more itchy) when it is kept warm. It is possible that sleeping for several hours under warm cover made your bites worse. I had a severe rash on my body once, and it literally made me unable to sleep, because as soon as I covered myself with a blanket, my skin was warmed up and started itching to the point it was unbearable.
