Extreme reaction to Midge/Mosquito/insect bite - connection to causes of acne?



Yesterday was playing football on a field, noticed a few midges flying around but didnt think much of it, by last night i was though, extreme itching on my legs kept me up all night. Checked them this morning and there are what looks like giant swellings from insect bites. I presume some kind of immune system over reaction.

This led me to think about the connection between my immune system and my acne.

Extreme reaction to Midge/Mosquito/insect bite - any connection to causes of acne?

Why is my immune system overreacing to things?

Seems to have got worse since going gluten free - obvs could just be a coincidence though.
