thanks for that info. I didn't know about
this usefull side-effect of Vit B.
Yes I do often take Vit B or Womens Multi Vits
with various B's in it. I had also noticed mozzies are not too interested
in me. I'd always put this down to me being a VERY cold extremities type so I
was harder to find if they were using heat seeking - wheras hot-blooded
companions were driven mad.
In contrast I
have noticed that lacewing nymphs are very inclined to bite me - and
the resultant itchy-bite lasts for weeks and drives me nuts! Fortunately they
don't get the chance too often!! Everyone (of the v limited no. of people who
actually know what a lacewing nymph is!) I'd mentioned this to was astounded and
had never experienced them biting.
bites drive me mad.
mozzies. My father grew up in Mildura where mozzies were a part of life. He said
he'd made a point of not scratching bites and found with time they lost their
itchy impact on him. I tried doing the same thing a decade or more ago and
yes it worked. Prior to that when bitten I was covered in itchy-bites.
Now I can avoid scratching them at all. (Though some of the mozzie born diseases
that are about and spreading now are rather worrying.)
