    As an obvious expert Jimlad, may I ask if you have researched this and which newspaper is best?

    I was on the beach this weekend after sundown - the recent wet weather has increased the numbers of mosquitos a lot and I felt being bitten many times on my legs and saw bumps already forming. My legs started to itch badly.

    Twice I spayed those lumps with ethyl alcohol and then my whole legs. I never experienced any itching again and the bumps diminished in size rapidly.
