Patient : Hello,
When I get a mosquito bite, the bite always swells up to abnormal proportions. When I get a complete bite (a.k.a. the mosquito is average to large size and has all the time it needs to fill up on blood) the bite will swell within 24 hours to about 2 to 3 inches in diameter (on the arm) and swell to about 1 centimeter above the skin's surface. All I've found online is Skeeter Syndrome. I try to avoid eating foods that encourage inflammation like sugar and omega-6 fatty acids in meat etc. but I still get these reactions to every mosquito bite. What can I do to get my body to calm down its immune system against mosquito proteins?
