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

In a span of two weeks I have gotten 3 bites on my hand and there are two on my pinkie right now on my left hand and my finger has swollen right on my knukle

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 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.

I got 20 mosquito bites all over my legs and arms and back and two under my feet, they are more painful and itchy than normal, plus get bigger and itch more often!

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 have a mosquito bite on my second toe and it’s so itchy and hard to scratch considering it’s such a small area

5 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

Question... How and why does anyone let this happen? - Cyri

6 Scalp

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

7 Elbows

Similar to ankles, but easier to scratch. - PetSounds

8 Calves

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

Getting bit anywhere is such a curse - LizardKing99

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

I think I got bit on the inside of my right ear and it hurts so bad. My mom grabbed one of those ear thingys and tried to look inside that ear and I started crying because IT'S REALLY PAINFUL AND I CAN'T SLEEP.

Then how will it be gone? - EpicJake

10 Toes

It itches worst out of all the other mosquito bites I’ve ever gotten. I have one on my 2nd toe on my right foot and it sucks..

The Contenders

11 Neck
12 Penis

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

I got 7 on mine and I don't know how but it's super annoying

Just got one use cortisone cream

The foreskin, THE FORESKIN, T H E F O R E S K I N

13 Eyelids

I have experienced the eyelid and it is terrible it seems like eyelids are the worst to me

14 Buttock

So relatable.

15 Belly Button

This happened to me and it is like a living hell

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

16 Knee

I was bitten in my knee this night. So annoying! - Userguy44

17 Breast
18 Heels
19 In Between Toes
20 Armpit

Especially when you're wearing tank top. - EpicJake

No - EpicJake

21 Back of Finger

Numbs the area in which it hurts like absolute hell.

22 Near Your Toe Nails

So disrespectful to bite their especially when you have to wear tennis shoes for work and you several bites on the sides of your big toe and an ant bite between 3rd and 4th

23 Back of Leg

Please tell me that I'm not the only one who thinks is the most annoying


24 Palms
25 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.

26 In Your Mouth
27 Eye Ball

It will hurt

28 Nose
29 Bottom of Big Toe

Numbs the toe, yet making it itch like hell

30 Arm
31 Eyes
32 In the Middle of the Foot

Itches as hell, but tickles to itch it
