I can be outdoors in a group of people..and get eaten alive..and when I complain, the people around me say "what mosquitos"? This has happened to me sense I was a child. WHY ME?
Being allergic helps quite a bit also in this department ... the initial bump size goes down like exponentially as a function of bites.Moonbear said:Yes, I do think there are differences in how much people react to mosquito bites too, so even among those getting bitten, some get giant, almost painful welts, and others just little itchy bumps, and others don't even notice the bites are there.
Personally attained experimental evidence suggests yes, however if the dump is large enough (as it typically seems to be) it seems they can't seem to be able to sting through the swelling (?) and they go and find a place right next to it (ouch). Information gathered from 1ks of bites, don't know whether has any general basis in reality ...Math Is Hard said:I've always wondered if you could get a mosquito bite on your mosquito bite.
Not poison, exactly; it's saliva. It contains an anti-coagulant so your blood won't clot up while they're drinking. Your body is allergic to the saliva, and you get a bump.misskitty said:When a mosquito bites you, the reason you get a bump is because they inject poision into your body as they bite you.
Some mosquitoes are hosts for the malaria "bug" (a protozoon, actually).heaven eye said:well first hi all

i think mosquitos bite people be cause the follows:-
femals mosquitos only who bites people be cause it needs blood for delivery
but what i dont understand that why mosquito puts malaria into people

I doubt mosquitos would bite the same place twice, after all the skin is now much thicker and probably impossible to penetrate, might well be harder to get blood no? No idea though really I've never got bitten in the same place twice.I've always wondered if you could get a mosquito bite on your mosquito bite.
