I too have an abnormally severe reaction to mosquito bites, and the "no-seeums" in barra really got me one year. I had been using various repellents with little relief, they seem to just skip over the rest of my family & head straingy to me. But I think that it was my body's reaction to the bites that was more pronounced than the quantity of bites. Hydrocortisone did almost nothing for me & the itching bumps would linger.
I finally asked my dermatologist about why I have such a severe reaction (sometimes fluid filled blisters) and she explained that, in relation to my seasonal allergies I have an stronger histamine reaction than average and ordered a prescription corticosteroid (Clobetasol) it is kind of a heavy hitter, but even very sparingly, it saved my last trip! It would stop the reaction right away & back to vacation mode!
