I have read - and can't back with any reliable source I'm sorry - that everyone attracts them, it's just that some people are allergic to them so they don't feel the anaesthetic that they inject before they bite you.
I have no idea if that's true or not. So either mozzies don't think I'm particularly tasty, or I'm not allergic to them.
I do attract mosquitoes, but I'm the least mosquito attractive of all my family members. Mosquitoes seem to prefer my wife and kids. I do seem to get less bites than all of them. I don't know if its because I'm hairier than them.
I hate mosquitos and they love me. At the moment I have a single bite on my arm and the swelling is as big as a large egg. The itch is unbearable. I think it is because I am very fair, I don't think mosquitoes want to bite olive skinned people.
I don't attract the occasional mosquito, I seem to send them into a frenzy and in swarms.
Can't understand why there isn't a product of the market(in Australia) that ACTUALLY repels them.
That was from the '60's to '80's.
But I think there's different medication now. You'd need to check with your GP, Vee.
And as far as I'm aware Malaria Medication is ONLY prescribed IF you going to a malarial country, like PNG, Sth America etc etc etc.
I am loved and adored by any mozzie within a 5km radius! I can be in a group of 10 people and I'll be eaten alive while everyone else remains untouched. I hate the little $#%*^! with a passion! And as time goes by I seem to be reacting worse to the bites than before. I seem to attract any insect that bites. It drives me nuts. I have B Negative blood and have been told that that may be the reason they love me. And don't even mention stuff like Aerogard! That's just 'marinade' to them when I put it on!
