So being as delicious as I am apparently I am a magnet for getting bitten by creatures.
I have tried everything before to stop getting bites and dealing with them. The creams, the tablets, the ice the lot.
But while i cannot advise you on how not to get them apart from where more clothing, which in this weather just is not appropriate!
Also the myth of smoking around them avoids them is a lie! Two summers ago I went to zante and I was smoking a lot, I no longer do, and I was bitten 18 times!!! So that is a lie.
But i do remember that people say that if you put a hot spoon near the bite it stops the itching. Well I went slightly further than that because I couldn’t sleep because of the itching.
So I put a naked flame near, very near to the bite and it starts to like tingle then goes from white to red and then you feel like a sharp discomfort. Then it’s fine! No more inching! It really really does work I promise! So please do give it a try but be careful 😘
