Hey, well I tend to be biten up all over but I found that if I cut the bite just enough to cause some pain im able to deal with it. While if it itches then I just go nuts,
Anyway, my question is, Am I just weird or odd... or are there other people that would rather have small amounts of pain over an ich?
I hate mosquito bites. I usually scratch so feverishly that I tear up the skin and end up bleeding anyway, so maybe I should try cutting my next bite...
I don't have much of a problem with mosquito bites. When I am in a group they might be eating the others alive but somehow they leave me alone. I guess there is some factor in our blood that attracts them to some people more than others.
Lol!.. you cut it? with a knife? geez.
I usually just bite it really hard till the stuff come out, then it's alright.. unless it's somewhere i cant bite lol.. then i'll just put up with it, cause im usually in the middle of nowhere when i get mosquitoe bites. lol
Mosquitoes don't bather me long enough to do much about. Some ants, OTOH, I soak the bites in water hot enough to be painful, but not hot enough to do any real damage; the pain is enough to override the itch for a while. Anything that actually forms blisters, I scratch until the blisters break, then clean it up really well with alcohol. The sting is more tolerable than serious itching as well.
Funny to read how some people get all worked up about something as trivial as a mosquito bite. Usually I am not bitten by the little creatures but when I am bitten, I just leave the bite. If you cut it open the itch will greately increase when healing and it takes longer for a gap in the skin to close then just for a little bite to disappear. Plus you get the risk of an infection when opening up mosquito bites. Show some spine, endure the itch. It only lasts a couple of hours.
I hate mosquito bites. I just try not to itch them and eventually they go away.
It's a minor thing to me, but I know it can drive some people crazy. Everybody is different, right? All I will say is that if you are going to be biting it open or cutting it, you might want to think about sterilizing it and covering it afterward. You just want to be careful about infections, ya know?
if you press your fingernail into the bite and make a cross pattern, it helps stop the itch for a little bit. I find it much more relieving than constantly scratching
