i get eaten alive when i go abroad, i take vitB1 and antihistamines (14 days before going and whilst away) and this helps, i tend to use the sprays or roll on repellants

Make sure you get something which contains DEET ... the more % the better.


Lemon juice & vinegar work too.

(although smelly ! )

Has i am a Avon rep, i would recommend it also:-

At the moment it is £2.50.

Our special formula oil is a convenient spray.

Use after a bath or shower to lock in moisture.

Non-greasy and quickly absorbed.

A light spray leaves skin silky smooth.

Perfect for your holidays - slip it into your suitcase to stay soft. 150ml.

It is a spray oil, the main ingredients in it are:

Mineral Oil, Isopropyl palmitate, Dicapryl Adipate, Fragrance, Dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate, BHT, lanolin alcohol, D&C yellow no.11, D&C red no. 17.

Not sure if that is any use, it smells ok, i sold 4 bottles last month.

I personally havent tried it, does your OH take antihistimines? i react badly to the bits and these do help control how bad the bites get, i tried the vitb1 and antihistimines when i went to venice years ago, i was really worried due to the dampness and my other holidays 9usually off plane straight to doctors)

when i arrived in venice and went to the boat the decks where smothered in mozzies and that was in the day, and i just though what a mess im going to be in when i get back to the uk, thankfully i only got the odd bite, and now whenever i go abroad i always take vitB1 and antihistamines, i wont say i dont get botten because i do but it is nothing compared to what it used to be like, i dont fear going abroad now

maybe worth a read here about click, although i wouldnt use anything on my bites due to a bad reaction on a holiday to greece, recommended by a doctor there, i put this stuff on the bites (some kind of amonia i think) you have never seen anything like it, when back in england my gp was disgusted that i had been able to purchase this over the counter, although he never actually told me what it was, so now i dont use anything and try to be careful about scratching

For £2.50 a bottle, you can't really go wrong!
