Are you one of those people who’s always under attack? We’ve gathered the best advice for you insect magnets out there


Dr Shamim Daya is a qualified GP who takes a holistic view of health and has trained in homeopathy, nutrition and herbal medicine. She says: ‘Getting bitten in the UK is often little more than a nuisance – but when you’re on holiday, getting stung or bitten by an insect could put you at risk of a serious illness such as malaria. Check with your GP before you travel to see if you need any inoculations or visit for advice. Once on holiday, keep your arms and legs covered in the evenings and close your bedroom windows at night when bugs are at their most active. If you develop a full-blown reaction to a bite or sting and experience difficulty breathing, swelling, vomiting or hives see a doctor straight away. And make sure you seek help if you’re in a known malarial region.’
