Can anyone help please.
The mosquitos here in Australia love me to bits and keep biting me despite covering myself in insect repellant. Is anyone else suffering like me?. Does anyone know how I can stop them biting me. I do the usual things, repellant, antihistamines, wearing trousers, long sleeve tops but no the buggers still get me and now I am getting really fed up . I went to another BBQ last night but hey I am paying the price today.
Hi I was in Croatia recently and got eaten day and night. I tried everything and resorted to rubbing raw garlic on my skin and alternated this with vinsgar!!! Smelt lush ...not!!!
I did read on the internet to stay clear of bananas as the oil in banana secreted through the skin is appealling to mossies, only found this out on the last day of holiday after eating bananas everyday!!!
Hope someone comes up with some solutions for us!!!
Take care and try not to scatch!!!!
Try 'skin so soft body spray'' by Avon, apparently the little buggars don't like it.
Hope it works, it has worked for me in the past
Stop eating bananas during mosquito season and take Vitamin B-1. If you google it you'll see both of these things are recommended... and are much better then rubbing garlic or rosemay over your skin (some other suggestions!!) :/
my advice dont get invited to bbqs then u wont get bit . no seriously take vit B supplemts and i was told garlic too, they cant stand it.
We went to Loch Ness recently and out of the 4 of us, I was the only one who was eaten alive despite all the Jungle juice I rolled or squirted on me
I have heard though that Skin so soft as already suggested works wonder - sounds like I'll need a boat load
If you find a cure - please pass it on xx
Got to agree with this, I used to sell Avon and a customer told me this really worked. I sold loads based on that--make sure you get the 'Woodland fresh'

Also agree, try yeast tablets or vitamin B, these also help to build up a resitance to the little blighters.
