Thanks everyone I will try the Vit b and garlic.
I have tried Avon SSS but unfortunately it did not work for me.
Keep the suggestions rolling in.
Not exactly something you can put on your skin, but if you're at home in your own garden, I'd recommend those lamp type things you can get. I know mortein does one. It's like a lamp, and you put a tablet in it, and then light a candle under the tablet. Sorry, but i can't remember what they're called. But I have found them to be very useful.
And if it did work, you could always carry one round with you.
AFAIK, in the Olden Days tonic water was devloped using the bark of a particular tree which is high in quinine, an anti-malarial, hence "tonic" water. Unfortunately this "tonic" was so bitter they had to mix it with gin to make it palatable. Now this is great if you catch malaria (spread by mozzies), but what if you don't want to get bitten in the first ?
Well, apparently Angostura Bitters contains something that mozzies don't like the smell of, and so the Pink Gin was born, and it works on three levels:
Angostura Bitters - to keep the mozzies away
Tonic Water - to cure the malaria caused by any mozzies stupid enough to ignore the above, and
Gin - so that if the first two don't work you won't care!
You could always try lemon-lime-bitters - very popular out here and good if one's driving, but personally I'm researching the Pink Gin. So far I'm still being bitten, but that's most likely due to my not drinking nearly enough of it.
I'll let (hic) you allll kown how my reeshersh goeshhhh.....
Sspleechid idea old bouuuy Pink gin the cornoer stone of a a healthy diet, hic, stumble ouch!
