Mosquito Bite Prevention Treatment:

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure... I had dreadful reactions for 20+ yrs. Swelling and incomprehensible itching. The kind that can drive you half mad and make you want to claw a hole in your body. And I thought I'd tried everything over the decades; every potion, lotion, even hot spoons. Nothing worked. If there was one of these devil tormentors within a 10 mile radius it seemed to find me. I finally found relief in Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) in 400-500mg taken daily, no less. The remedy came from a pharmacy in Thailand. Allegedly mozzys don't like the smell, though we can't smell it. It shocked me it worked so well. I got the odd bite but it didn't swell, remained tiny, and barely an itch. Before I'd have 12+ welts with tormenting itching. Now I only get 1or 2, no welts, and no bother.

Friends who travel in hot mozzy infested areas were impressed too. They'd start taking it a week before their trip. But taking the right dose seems vital. If the dosage was skimped (300mg or less) it didn't work. Some take it in divided doses am/pm but I just took it all at once, so can't comment if that's more effective. I've also read Vitamin B1 is not a systemic mosquito repellent, but I am can attest it works great for me. Cheers.
