I am literally covered in mosquito bites for the 5th summer in a row since moving to NC. I don't know, they love me, but I don't love them back! I've tried normal repellents, but they still seem to manage to get me. Plus, I seem to have a terrible reaction to them too. I also tried normal anti itch creams and they only give partial relief.
I guess what I'm asking is, are there any strong mosquito repellents and creams that I could possibility get with a prescription? I've tried everything!

This works like a CHARM! Just wear it around yoru neck & you will not get bitten. I am just lke you, i cannot even walk to the mailbox without getting nailed. And when i do get bit, hey are like HUGE welts! It looks like i got shot with a paint ball gun. This is a bit more expensive, but it really works, & you don't have to spray yourself with some nasty chemical that smells lik ass. I use it every day in my garden where it is mosquito infested.

Anything with deet in it should provide good protection.
Mosquitoes don't wander far from where they hatch and they lay their eggs in water. In the Spring make sure you have no standing water around your property, and it doesn't take much.
