I take an antihistamine daily on holiday as I suffer from prickly heat, this also reduces reaction to mozzie bites. I plaster myself in boots extra strong insect repellant too, I also use it if I go into the garden.
I haven't tried SSS although I did know about its reputation. Might give it a go down the garden, but wouldn't risk it on hols as last time I didn't use insect repellant I was rewarded with 42 bites on one leg, below the knee. Not an experience I wish to repeat.
When dating her now husband my daughter went travelling with him. They booked into a hotel on Corfu and after a night celebrating in the bar he fell asleep naked on the balcony with the light on. He had so many bites he ended up in hospital, all I can say it's a good job he fell asleep face down.
