Okay, I am not exaggerating when I say that mosquitos love my blood.
Over the last two weeks I have already gotten over 25 bites. And I don't hang outside during the evenings and when I do, I wear long pants, socks, long shirt, etc! I have bites even on my butt! Sorry for the info hahah.
This has been a life long problem. It is getting so bad that I have started to become allergic to them. Here in Sweden, I am not that allergic to the bites. However, in Australia, I was extremely allergic to the bites. In the US, I am also severely allergic to the bites. I guess it has to do with different kinds of mosquitos.
The summer before last, my dad, my boyfriend and I went out on a 20 mile hike in Yosemite up to the top of El Capitan. I was fully clothed, head to toe with layers of mosquito spray on and a mosquito wristband. When I got back, I counted over 75 bites, whereas both my dad and boyfriend had about 20 bites combined!
Does anyone know of any effective methods to prevent mosquitos from biting me?
Mosquito spray with Deet doesn't do all that much. And I normally only use it when I am out camping . I also don't want to smell like mosquito spray all the time.
I am looking for something to wear such as a lotion or oil that I can put on as an everyday preventive measure since I get the bites during the day as well.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
