What do you do if your body breaks out with bumps and gets itchy after some kind of sting on your head?

my dad was mowing the lawn and some bug bit his head and now it hurts and his body is covered with random bumps and his skin is itchy. is it an allergy reaction? what should I do?

Sounds like it is an allergic reaction. Give him 2 benydryl. Check with your local pharmacist and make sure if he takes other medication it is ok to mix the meds. Watch for swelling of the tongue or throat, trouble breathing etc. Call 911 if these occur because it means he is in major trouble.

Yes might be an allergy. Call a doctor. If it's bad go to an emergency room. If it's not so bad try benadryl and calamine lotion.

What's calamine lotion?

You can get it at a drug store. It helps with the itch. Used a lot for poison ivy.
