Stop the biting!

Does anyone know a way to keep mosquitoes from biting? My poor 2 year old is a mosquito munching ground. I've tried spraying him down with Off. I rub him down with anti-bug lotions. I even tried giving him B1 everyday. He still gets bit! These bites swell up and he scratches them until they bleed. It's gotten so bad that I give him benedryl every night to keep him from itching in his sleep.

Aww poor kid. I don't know of any solutions. Bug bites don't really bother my son. They look terrible on him but they don't really bother him.

Have you tried lemon grass oil? Mosquitos hate the smell of lemon grass.

OMG that just looks scary, mosquitos love my son too but not this bad. Poor little guy. Keep him in long pants if he is going to be outside especially around dusk.
