My toddler has had some musquito bites, and I was frankly alarmed at how large and how itchy those bites become if scratched even a little bit.
The mosquite bites I remember from my childhood (I’m 44) were insignificant little red bumps that faded overnight.
I would have thougt that is just me misremembering, but I’ve heard from several other people that they, too, think musquito bites have become larger and more troublesome.
So, is there any truth to that? Do we have different musquitos now? Different body chemistry due to different food/medicine?
