Because female mosquitoes bite humans and other animals in order to procure blood for the use of egg generation, mosquitoes are often responsible for the spread of disease. Mosquitoes can spread malaria, encephalitis and yellow and dengue fevers. A mosquito bite can also cause an allergic reaction in a sensitive individual.

Mosquito Bite

Usually, a mosquito bite will produce a red, itchy bump. These bites can bleed if scratched. If the irritation persists, you can take an antihistamine in order to reduce itching and swelling. It’s important that you consult a physician before taking any new medications. With time some individuals can develop immunity to the saliva of a mosquito. When this happens they might not experience any symptoms at all if they are bitten.

Who is Susceptible to Mosquito Allergies?

If you spend a good amount of time outdoors, or already have a compromised or weak immune system, you might be especially susceptible to mosquito allergies. Severe symptoms include blistering rashes, bruises, and excessive swelling. It is rare, but victims who are allergic might experience anaphylaxis, hives, or an asthma attack. A medical professional should be contacted immediately in the event of a severe allergic reaction.

How to Protect Yourself from Mosquitoes

If you are planning on spending time outside and you know you are susceptible to mosquito allergies you should cover your skin in khaki or beige clothing. Mosquitoes are not as attracted to these colors. Mosquitoes may be attracted to certain smells present in soap, shampoos and lotions. Therefore, these should be used in moderation. Unscented varieties of these items may be less attractive. Because they are shielded from direct sun, mosquitoes are most active from dusk until dawn. So, if it’s possible, avoid being outside during these times. While a mosquito control plan is the most effective, the use of citronella or insect repellent will help you to avoid bites.
