Top Ten Most Annoying Places to Have a Mosquito Bite

I am a Canadian who hikes daily, and I therefore have to put up with these miniature vampires. They have a knack for biting you in places that leave you shaking your head and thinking, "How the HELL did that bug get in there? "

The Top Ten

1 Fingers

At the joints specifically. I think there are better places from where they can suck the blood than those bloody fingers. Maybe the belly (though we won't allow it through our clothes). - Kiteretsunu

Ha! I've never ever been bitten by a mosquito. I feel like I've been blocked out of some exclusive club. Now I really want one - a mosquito bite, that is... - Britgirl

Scratching away at one on my finger right now. Gosh this list gave me the willies all over... - keycha1n

Right on the back between the knuckles and the first joint is the worst..
How did they even bite there?!

2 Ankles

I have one on my ankle right now and It's driving me crazy! I have really sweet blood and can't get through a summer without obtaining at least 100 bites. - BKAllmighty

You know those bruises you get when you bump your ankle? Multiply the annoyance by ten. - PetSounds

I have one on the back of my ankle where the shoe rubs.. It's a killer


3 Back

Especially on that little square that's out of both swatting and scratching range. - PetSounds

Especially when we can't reach it ( I scrub my back to wall when it itches hooray bears! ) - Toucan

I could reach any part of my back. Not a problem for me.

4 Genitals

Fortunately for me, mosquitoes seem to be attracted to my mother and brother. I felt sorry for my bro when he got it on the testicle. - PositronWildhawk

When you're scratching your genitals and the police arrest you for masturbating.

This requires no explanation. - PetSounds

I had to itch my butt in public when a cheeky mosquito bit it! IT WAS SO EMBARASSING! - PizzaGuy

5 Feet

I once went outside without shoes and socks, and I got a total of 134 mosquito bites on my feet and ankles. I was in agony and couldn't walk for a week. They always seem to bite in multiples on the feet.

Especially on the bottom of your foot where it is frowned upon to take off shoes and itch in public! It's the worst!

I've been bitten right through thick socks in the past. - PetSounds

I have one on my right foot right now and it is itching like CRAZY.Well,after that my foot started aching because I scratched my foot a little too much

6 Scalp

I honestly have no idea how the bugs even get through to skin. - PetSounds

7 Calves

Simply because they're very unsatisfying to scratch. - PetSounds

Getting bit anywhere is such a curse - LizardKing99

8 Elbows

Similar to ankles, but easier to scratch. - PetSounds

9 Ears

Or right behind them. Thankfully, mosquitoes (or mosquitos, I'm still not sure) rarely succeed, thanks to their high-pitched whine. They leave that to the black flies. - PetSounds

10 Toes

The Contenders

11 Neck
12 Penis

I never experienced this, but I believe this is the worst, along with armpit.

Got 2 on there now it's horrible


Had this before
Was convinced I had already died and went to hell
Feels VERY good to scratch though, and not in a sexual way

13 Eyelids
14 Breast
15 Armpit

Especially when you're wearing tank top. - EpicJake

No - EpicJake

16 Knee
17 Belly Button

Dear lord it's painful when it gets swollen.

Oh dear lord, just any kind of bite there is painfull. It's so hard to treat it b/c you can't get a lot of cream in there and if you need to itch you don't really know where to itch. Just touching the area around it is painful. Dear lord

18 Back of Finger

Numbs the area in which it hurts like absolute hell.

19 Heels
20 Buttock
21 In Between Toes
22 Nose
23 Bottom of Big Toe

Numbs the toe, yet making it itch like hell

24 Back of Hand

You can't even use your hand till bite heals, which is annoying as hell.

You get a numb hand and you can't even scratch it because if you try you will only make your hand worse.

27 Near Your Toe Nails
