Insects aside, when I lived in London I sometimes used to get these sudden, weird, raised, red flare-ups on the side of my neck or on the inside of my arms, like an allergic reaction to something, but not anything obvious. (I no longer get these — I wonder if, perhaps, they were related to pollution?)

    I think a lot of people have similarly reactive skin: a little patch that appears for no reason, itches like mad and then goes away again, or all sorts of stress-related rednesses and rashes and irritations that pop up when they are least welcome. And then there are the more explicable things such as insect bites, nettle rash, snog rash, spots, grazes, you know the sort of thing.
