Are Mosquito Bites Supposed To Have Clear Liquid Coming Out Of Them?

I used to have a lot of insect bites like this while in England, and my doctor said they were caused by midges. If the fluid runs copiously it can be a sign of infection. But you could also be allergic to something in the venom of that particular insect. Horsefly bites, for example, tend to become angry and run copiously on a lot of people.

How Bad Can These Bites Be?
I used to have to be very careful as if I got a bite on my knee, one on my ankle, and one anywhere else on the same leg, I would come out in blisters all over it and it would swell up with septicaemia. This has only happened to me three times in my life.

What Can I Do Stop Insects Biting Me?
I have heard that eating plenty of garlic and/or brewers yeast will keep biting insects away, as it makes your blood unattractive to them. If true, that is probably a better method of solving the problem than using anti-bug sprays. I have found I am not alone in my conviction that they actually attract the things rather than repel them!

It's your white blood cells coming to do battle against the invasion... No worries.. Just try not to scratch it too much.

That would be a mosquito bite. You can use calamine lotion to ease the itch, and try not to scratch it. Hope this helps, good luck not accidentally scratching it, I hate that.

I have so many MOSQUITO BITES you can't even IMAGEN...It's HORRIBLE my MOM thinks I'm ALLERGIC. #1 way to solve the ITCH is Putting CALAMINE LOTION on your BUG BITE. #2 way is putting CORTISONE to lessin the ITCH. #3 way is to put ALCHOL or PEROXID on your BIT. That is ALL I have to say...
