Picked up some out of desperation as my daughter is allergic to mosquito bites - they swell up quarter sized on her - and her little brother is a mosquito magnet. The stuff works surprisingly well. However, I've watched tiger mosquitoes ignore my treated skin and land on my pants when I've only treated my skin, and it seems to decrease in effect sometime between one and two hours after application. My daughter says it really stings if you've already scratched the bite.

I assume you have already tried Benadryl spray on the bites.

I have good luck using "Lugol's Iodine" on my bug bites. They seem to heal a lot faster now. I don't know if you can buy Lugol's Iodine over the counter (I make my own) but tincture of iodine should be easy to buy and should give similar results. The main difference is tincture has alcohol, Lugol's does not. If you get the iodine on soon enough, it may kill the germs from the mosquito before they have a chance to do their mischief under the skin.

Thanks and repped - use betadine as a disinfectant. She doesn't have trouble with them getting infected typically, just the swelling is quick and rapid, and evidently extends deeper than the Benadryl spray typically is effective. In Alaska during the summer it would probably resemble an attack by a wasp nest on a regular person.

I feel for you, I really do. I think iodine is one of the essential elements that we have walked away from, but of course others are also important. Magnesium is another important element, and adding epsom salts to bath water can help. Also, vitamin D is important to the immune (and inflamation) system. It also helps a lot against sunburn. I try to get 10,000 IU per day (two 5000 IU pills) when I remember to take them. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is also great, we add it to to the Koolaid so everyone gets some every day.
