Being stupidly allergic to mosquitos (trust me, the amount of bites I recieved, still no immunity) I've discovered the most potent mix to control bite/swlling/itch is AfterBite (I never have found it to sting) with Tigerbalm, Cortisone, and Anti Histamines (Benedril etc). With that, I find myself not itching anymore, but feeling like a needle poking into the bites.
Anyways, I'll try the bounce theory next time I go out. I'll skip the deet and carry a few sheets of bounce, if anyone else wants to play guinea pig.
