They said O was stung the most and B the least.

Any truth I don't know I wanted to see what you guys and gals thought.

For what it's worth, when I went to Vietnam I was COVERED in mosquito bites all over my body - I had so many bites that it looked like severe, bleedy chicken pox   my family didn't get them anywhere near as bad as me, except for my brother (he's also type O)

This is very interesting- I was having a health issue and went to my Doc in Dallas to try to find out what was wrong. It turned out that I had Pernicious/Megablastic anemia-extremely low B-12. I also had just returned from a trip to South Texas and had been eaten alive by mosquitoes. My Doc told me that mosquitoes are attracted to people with low B-12. I get B-12 shots regularly and noticed that when I was a few days away from getting my shot, the mosquitoes would start biting again. Since starting the BTD and taking Dr. D's Methyl-B12, I only get a shot every 4-6 weeks instead of once a week. I have only had one mosquito bite this season and that says alot considering I live in East Texas.   I wonder if it is actually blood type or the contents of you blood???

I'm A- nonnie, and you can relax if you're next to me in a room full of mosquitoes, they would not even see you!!

As a matter of fact, since we moved to a new place 3 months ago, I get bitten all the time and no one else does.

I can relate to your pain Zuxuzinha   I couldn't enjoy cookouts or anything outside from April until October/November. You might want to get your B-12 checked...it really isn't necessary though because B vitamins are water soluable. Anything your body doesn't use is passed through urine so you won't overdose. I would just start taking a good Methyl B-12. It has helped me-much more absorbable.

Good luck!!! It won't happen overnight-it takes a little time to build up your levels if they are real low.

I also think that besides genetics, some are way more prone to be bitten due to the smells on the skin.  

I never get bitten, unless I use regular soap.. Instead I have used Vitabath for 50 years..



Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

My hubby gets them really bad (probably a hunter). My son and I, not much, and we're both O negative. No clue which of us are nonnies, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was all three...

Hubby's bites take weeks to go away.  Mine are gone in a day or less. I've never had seasonal allergies, but he has, so I'm guessing some of it is base levels of reactivity/inflammation more than anything.

I take the prescribed dose of methyl B 12 every day for adrenal fatigue, which is twice the dose Dr. D recommends, and still got bitten 20 times in one week! But I never feel pernicious anemia. Must have been other things on my skin. Maybe I will check out Vitabath.

For reducing the number of mosquito bites, B1 is considered to be more effective than B12.

I used to get bit all the time. Haven't been bit since I quit wheat and sugar. My Mom, an A, eats lots of wheat and sugar and every mosquito out there lands on her and bites her. Not sure what that means but glad they don't bite me

Mosquitoes haven't bothered me this season as much as when I was younger, but they ate me alive then.  Right now I am burning like fire on my leg from some sort of wasp sting I got a few minutes ago. I have taken several supplements and have meat tenderizer plastered on it. I'm mostly mad at the wasp! I have no idea what his problem was.   I have noticed that I am not nearly as allergic to poison oak and ivy as I used to be. I am also taking more B-12 for the last year.

a paste of baking soda and water on bee/wasp bites. Let it sit a few minutes then scrape it off with a credit card. The stinger should come out and the swelling to follow should be reduced
