I currently have 15 mosquito bites on my legs and 3 on my arms. Ever since I can remember, my skin has always freaked out about mosquito bites. The Dude says he gets itchy for only an hour or so, but mine last for dayss. I remember going to Dallas with my church to help inner-city kids and families and having over 100 mosquito bites on my legs alone. My mom says it's because my blood is sweet. I woke up twice in the middle of the night in itching pain, rubbing hydrocortisone with my eyes closed, trying to feel where the itching is coming from. The discomfort is unending.
