Good morning.  
I would like to use the map of dengue distribution in a publication.  
Could you give me permission for the reproduction?  
With best regards, D. Häder

Hello. I read your article about the no-seeums. While in Sanibel, Florida last September 2015, I was devoured by no-see-ums. About 10-15 days later, I developed a severe reaction to the bites. I forget what my doctor officially diagnosed me with, but basically, my body just went into overdrive to try and fend off the attack. I was quite sick and developed a large blistery rash that covered almost my entire back. It resembled shingles (which I was originally diagnosed with). Anyway,it it now January 2016, and I still have left over little red "blister" looking bumps, which flare up at least weekly and itch like crazy. So much so, that I will wake up at night itching away. Tonight, as I write this, is one of those nights, so I popped a benedryl to help calm things down. My question to you is, do you know how long these things will continue to itch? Will they ever go away?  
I've had mosquito bites many times in my life, they itch, and then go away, However, this is ridiculous! I would say I have about 20 bites left over and scattered about my body. In case it helps, I am in my mid 50's, and female. I live in SoCal - we don't have those nasty things here! But we do have West Nile. So taking precaution where that is concerned. Thank you for your time.
