While I was up at the lake, my mom pulled out an old bottle of something that claimed to be an anti-histamine cream. We expected it to have no effect, but it actually did help. Whether that was placebo or just 'cause it was nice cool distracting goop on my bitten toe, I have no idea. But that might be a more reasonable option than dosing your entire system with anti-histamines.
I hadn't heard that about type O potentially attracting more bites... but in looking it up, I found this article that claims that pregnancy also makes you a tastier target. Might be time to start investing in gauzy mosquito netting dresses for the summer. ;)
