    Because I am always covered in bites and Mr. F.  not a one I was looking to see if the fact that I have Rh-negative A blood group and he positive O had any bearing on the fact, I didn’t find that out but DID find out that I am much more susceptible to allergic reactions and this has proved to be very true, I have had many over the years, even ending up in an isolation ward on one occasion, an interesting discovery.

    Anyone else of this blood group found this to be so?

    O is apparently the most susceptible to mossie bites, A the least. I’m O- mossies and other biters love me and also have allergies. :unsure:

    There doesn’t seem to be any connection about the biters and blood groups tournesol and mozzies like me too so :unsure:

    I guess it doesn’t mean that only neg A have allergic reactions but perhaps have more of them than other groups? I just find these things interesting.

    Hi

    Interesting

    B+  rarely bitten and few allergies

    Other half is rhesus ( –  ) eaten alive by insects and quite a lot of allergies.

    Makes you wonder

    O- is the universal blood, it can be given to everyone in an emergency if the receiver’s blood group is not known, extra helpful if you’re a donor with this type.

    Not insinuating that you’re common, Tournesol! ;-)

    Here you go, Fruitcake https://endmosquitoes.com/why-do-mosquitoes-bite-me-and-not-my-husband/

    And this is interesting https://www.healthtestingcenters.com/what-you-need-know-about-blood-type-and-your-health/

     

    ETA: Yes, I’m a universal donor, so have a use, but can only receive O-.

    Helpful tournesol, although I had read the 2nd link you posted when researching. In actual fact we don’t get mozzies in the house, we have a net up the door and don’t open the windows, they find me outside and so does every other biting creature. The secretions mentioned are very relevant to me, I perspire easily and profusely and I have always thought that’s maybe what attracts the biters!

    I’m the same as you, Fruitcake, don’t open the windows (because of hayfever), had the odd one indoors though, obviously sneak in when the door has been opened or hitched on the dog, a bee did once. Also, same as you on the perspiring front, which is grim. It has been said to have Marmite, but I do eat it and still get bitten. :negative:   It seems we just have to accept being attractive and keep using the anti lotions & potions, plus anti itch when attacked. :unsure:

    It’s our cross to bear tournesol! Mr. F. has had one bite all summer and took great pains to tell me! I’m afraid I wasn’t too sympathetic (something along the lines of ‘welcome to my world’ I think!)

    It sure is, Fruitcake and for the record, my reply would have been the same too. We’re not twins split at birth, are we? :scratch:   lol

    :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    It’s at this stage of the summer, when there are not many parts of my body that are either covered in bites or has the scars of those that were, that I start looking forward to the winter tournesol!

    No, we’re not twins, Fruitcake, as I would rather winter didn’t arrive. It’s a bit painful and I’d rather avoid it. Quite happy to enjoy autumn then slide into spring. Not literally though! ;-)

    I adore Spring, it’s my very favourite season, if only we still had it, we seem to have a week or perhaps two if we’re lucky then dive straight into summer heat before reverting back, too late, into what mother nature perceives to be spring (but isn’t as it’s too cold) when we should be in early summer! Autumn is my least favourite season, once the lovely colours have gone it’s just mucky.

    I had no idea what blood group I was, some years ago, I asked my Doctor, he was surprised that I even wanted to know, I thought (naively) that your blood was typed at birth, but apparently not, he said it wasn’t important and in an emergency, I would get “O” I am not to keen on that, I said I needed the same, it is a bit like mixing Duckams with Castrol. a no, no.

    I read an article recently that surmised that those who get bitten badly, (like my poor wife) were probably bitten when they were younger and their system has therefore been altered, causing them to be more susceptible to subsequent attacks.

    I hardly get bitten and I was brought up in a city. My wife lived in the country and used to play near a stream as a child. She suffers badly.

    Could have some merit?

    It could, although I grew up in a council house, though it was on the edge of a village, but don’t recall any major incidents of bites :unsure:

    That wasn’t a good attitude by your GP whatnow, it is important to know your blood group!

    I am B+ and allergic to everything from bites stings and medicines.  I somehow doubt blood group has a lot to do with it……sheer bad luck on my part i suspect.

    Doubt it Pete,  we have a very balanced diet of organic meat, fish, fresh fruit and veggies.  We don’t eat anything with additives knowingly.  Diet is important to us.
    Some people are just unlucky and react i guess. :)
