I felt its bite, at first, but after having injected me its anti-coagulant, I couldn’t feel it no more . .

I was about to test my new improvised close-up lenses shooting some ants when I felt a sharp tiny bite behind my right leg. It was an awkward position to properly video this tiny black & white striped mosquito, but I thought that was my only chance to shoot close-up my most hated tiny enemies on this planet! Note, after a time, my skin turning red from the bite.

Just recently, the grandma of my son’s girlfriend suffered from mild “denge” but who fortunately was immediately brought to the hospital for a quick recovery. ~~~>:) glenn

    Vics Magsaysay: Glenn, just dab some vinegar or apple cider vinegar on the affected part. Banana peel (the inside) and baking soda with little water work, too. KATINKO ointment, which I always have in my pocket, is great for that. Even that ‘niknik’ or gnat didn’t continue giving me that red swelling that’s typically its iconic mark. Good to ward off mosquitoes this summer especially when your hands are steadily holding your camera for an outdoor ops. No time to swat them lil’ vampires. White Flower or Green Oil ointments is also okay.

    Cary Abeleda: That’s true, Katinko ointment is very effective. The bite (red dot) fades after several applications which otherwise becomes permanent.
