Do you itch your bug bites to the point of breaking your skin?

  1. Okay SO! I tend to get attacked by mosquito's more then the average person. In fact I currently have about a dozen bites on my back alone. The other day I was itching the ones on my arm to the point where I would break through my skin and create a scab (I hate that word for the record, sounds disgusting)... While I was having my itching fit my boyfriend told me that I am the only person he knows that itches bug bites to the point of bleeding, I on the other hand know a few people that love to itch like I do. So the question is: Do you love to itch bug bites as much as I do?
     
  2. I itch em to hell a lot but i try not to. It just feels too good sometimes. And yea sometimes i scratch em til they bleed but ill stop and sterilize em after
     
  3. I don't itch them that bad myself, but I know lots of people who do. Not that strange.
     
  4. There needs to be a middle ground of "Sometimes" in this poll
     
  5. I considered making a middle ground, but I'm trying to win a debate and therefore there can not be a middle ground.
     
  6. I avoid itching those because of how much worse it gets. x__x What I do is slop on a bunch of ointment until it feels better.
     
  7. I itch like crazy, when I'm bitten by mosquitoes... Stupid bugs...
     
  8. WHY DO YOU PEOPLE SAY IT "ITCH"?!

    IT'S "SCRATCH"! YOU SCRATCH AN ITCH!

    XP
     
  9. I honestly don't notice them. People freak out because it's soooooo itchy, but my other skin conditions make it so I don't feel bug bites. Unless its spiders.

    But, that's another tangent altogether.
     
  10. I mentally block the feeling and just don't scratch the bug bites. Or I'll run a very sharp knife across the tip and bleed it some, that fixes it, too.
     
  11. *doesn't have mosquitoes in his country*

  12. Dear God, yes I do. And I love to wear shorts and skirts. I've turned to hittin' the sauce to ward the bloodsucking sumbitches off.

    *Cracks open her Hill Billy Cure All Book* Finally, a thread where this is useful.


    Just get a spray bottle and fill it with vodka, lemon juice, and a few drops of lavender/and vanilla oil. All of these things can be found in most local grocery stores. Plus, you smell like you've just had a vodka-fueled romp through an orchard. (So tell me what your boyfriend thinks of you after you try this.)

    You can just drink the leftover vodka. You won't be needing it.

    Or you could have a daily drink of gin and tonic. Tonic water contains quinine, which is said to repel mosquitoes. All you need is: gin (lots!), tonic water, a lime wedge, adult supervision if you're under age and you're set. :D
     
  13. Whoever thought a drinking habit could yield such wisdom?!

    8D
     
  14. TEGAN IT WON'T LET ME LIKE YOUR POST!! T_T
     
  15. She's the unlikeable sort.
     
  16. Eating a pickle a day does the same things too. Or drinking a little pickle juice. Make it more romantic and have your boyfriend feed it to you.


    TELL ME WHAT YOUR BOYFRIEND SAYS WHEN YOU TELL HIM YOU WANT HIM TO FEED YOU A PICKLE A DAY. It's ok for you to do this because I am a doctor.
     
  17. Happens to me, and 70% of the time, they're not caused by mosquitoes, but ants.
     
  18. Because when you SCRATCH an ITCH it makes it more ITCHY.... So it's just easier to say ITCH. Thats my reasoning for it.

    The pickle thing makes me giggle. Having someone feed you fruit is sexy, but a pickle?! That would just smell and look weird. Although, I do love a good juicy pickle. OM NOM NOM!
     
  19. Yeah, I haven't gotten that badly bit up. When I do I don't really feel anything unless my arms brush up against something, then I scratch a little bit before I stop myself. xD
     
  20. I thought itch was the sensation, so satisfy that feeling is to scratch. You can't itch a scratch but you definitely scratch an itch P:

    I nearly always scratch til it bleeds, unless it's (unfortunately) on my face or somewhere I do not wanna bleed. My friend just recently scabbed a bite on her ear.

    Yeahhhh.... I used to visit my relatives in PI (Philippines... when I type it I'm scared of summoning Paorou...) would come back States-side COVERED in mosquito stings and ant bites.

    I am particularly sensitive to spider bites. I don't get them that often but they always get really big, red and swell like a mofo when I do get them. I scratch them, but never til they bleed, never. There is one little bump like a mosquito sting that is the main itchy part, but the whole area gets hot and swells, scabbing that sucker would lead to bleeding out half the liquids in my body, those are REALLY nasty bites.
