i've been getting swollen bug bites of enormous size the last few years -- i always thought i had just developed an allergic reaction to them (perhaps what the internet calls "Skeeter syndrome"). In any case, anti-histamines were the most effective thing to make it less itchy.

mosquito's are nothing, anyone going out into the bush/camping should always be on the lookout for tick bites

you'll know if you get bit by a tick, the bite looks like a bulls eye, red dot than a larger red ring around the dot, typically that symbolizes a tick with lyme disease

lyme disease can be serious shit so if you ever see a bite like that you need to go to a doctor ASAP and most ppl go on antibiotics for like 5 months

Skeeter bites rarely bother me. I know I'm one of the lucky few. I will try the hot spoon method tho when one does.
