Over the years there have been so many bits of information about bites on this site. What some members swear by, others swear about. There seems to have been several things that have come up time and time again.
For the ladies, use a NON PERFUMED shower jel. The use fo a good mozzie repellent, make sure all exposed areas have a good covering.
For the men, it has been said drink plenty of beer as the beasties do not like the yeast. I like this idea but it is completly unproven. Vitamine B from yeast or other sources like Marmite has been said to help.
Where you are staying, close shutters and windows early. Use plenty of of anti-mozzie preparations from late afternoon onwards. Keep lights turned off unless essential. Try and save a couple of Euros and be prepared to have your holiday ruined.
Carry anti histamine tablets with you just in case you get a severe reaction to a bite. The 2 ended liquid pencils available from most supermarkets are a good first aid device if bitten. One end is alkaline, the other acid. Dependant on the bite apply the correct end to relieve the effects. As always ask locals for help, they have a wealth of local knowledge of how to deal with bites.
I am sure that this thread will run and run as it has for several years.
