What I'd like to know is WHY do ALL my mosquito bites start to itch all at once as soon as ONE bite starts to itch?! It's like they are all connected to the same nerve or something - even if they are far apart from each other on your body! Annoying bastards - they ruin summer!

I used to live by a forest so being a mosquito magnet I got a bitten several times daily: I didn't get immune but the itchy bumps were small, around the size of pinky fingernail. Then I lived for ten years in a practically mosquito free area: one mosquito bite caused my whole upper arm to swell. People in SE Asia where I live now seem to be unfazed by mosquito bites.
what DO YOU WANT!?
Mosquito: Hello mind if I get some blood? Me: No Also me: *slaps mosquito*

What's the point of getting bit by thousands of mosquitoes that possibly have a disease when you're not immune if you're trying to be immune to it? You'd die before success.

It doesn't help make you immune, but soaking the bite in hot water does help the pain. A hot bath is also less likely to give you malaria than 1,000 bites.

Applying your own saliva several times on mosquito bites stops the itching and swelling due to natural antiseptics in saliva I've been doing this the last 20 years and it works every time.

This is true, we get a lot of mosquitos in parts of Australia, when you are a kid you have strong reactions, when you get older it becomes very mild. We notice when people from england/ireland or other countries with much less mosquitos are with us outside and they say they have been eaten alive and have large reactions to the bites, we don't even notice. I tell them it's because their blood is sweeter, but it's really just desensitisation. This doesn't happen for all Australians but a large portion in certain areas. Edit: Don't get me wrong, we try to avoid them, and kill them when we see them, and when there are tonnes around which we can't avoid will use repellant, I'm just talking about the reaction to the bite.

Recently, there has been a few cases of people getting rabies from mosquito bites. Forget immunity, and avoid mosquito bites as much as you possibly can.

So, one reason I never react to mosquito bites is because I take antihistamins due to my allergies to pollen, or am I in the wrong here?

Mosquitos don’t usually bite me. Here in SoFla, growing up, white friends at picnics n pool parties would be complaining and I couldn’t relate. I also can’t wear jewelry, (any metallic contact other than 22k gold creates rash) so I think there may be some correlation between the two in my skin chemistry.

I’m usually a mosquito magnet. We LOVE to go camping, unfortunately so do the mosquitoes. I accidentally found out, at least for myself, that Claritin & Zyrtec have both helped me. Didn’t completely stop them, but for the most part they do not hurt as much when they bite. I told my nephew on a camping trip once, same went for him. So it’s definitely worth a try.

This explains so much. I've been completely immune to the tiger mosquitoes in this region basically my whole life. But over the past few years the mosquitoes the in habit the state south of us have been moving up here and I am very much not immune to them! They are some brown thing... Totally different species. Now I understand why. :) Thanks for the cool video.

One time I was staying in Mexico during an especially moist week and woke up with more than 60 mosquito bites on my exposed skin. I stopped counting after 60, since that seemed like a good enough number to stop at, but none of them itched. I then proceeded to spend the next few days enjoying the reactions of normal humans when they realized my pox-ridden body was actually the result of a mosquito swarm. Hilarious! I was also pleased to announce that I did in fact, not get malaria.

I disagree with premise. Urban mosquitoes don't cause as much irritation as country mosquitoes. Definitely something in the chemicals, although I do believe you can build a tolerance to bites.

I spent most of my childhood in forest. The summers at least. My parents took me on journeys to lapland before i could speak on walk. And you know. I've never been bothered by mosquitoes. My sisters didn't become as desensitized as i did, but still, it's been nice not having to care.

So you're really talking about losing the immune over reaction to bug bites, not being immune to them biting you. Strangely, even though I have respiratory allergies to almost everything, I have very little reaction to mosquito bites - but I still do not want them biting me!
