So, if your’re that friend in your group being chomped by bugs then these are 7 reasons why and how you could avoid it from happening. Scroll down below!
1. Carbon Dioxide
So, it turns out that mosquitoes are drawn to carbon dioxide so go easy on the breathing. This can mostly affect people with larger body masses or pregnant women.
2. Body Temperature
Body temperature could be the root of your problems actually. So, if you are super hot and sweaty all the time, this might be what’s calling those blood sucking pests to your neck. Don’t forget the bug spray!
3. Blood Type

Every one of us has a flora of microbes living underneath our skin and if you think about it, we’re just big walking sacks of germs. The combination of these floras and microbes, according to Journals, might affect how much the skitters want to dine.
You won’t believe this but people who exercise are more prone to bites because of the amount of lactic acid that the skin recreates. That can increase your body temperature which can also cause you to be bitten by bugs.
I am so sorry for the party people here but cracking open a cold one, might cause those itches first thing in the morning. Maybe it’s time to cut back for the sake of your skin.
