Allergist Irina Yartseva explained who mosquitoes bite most often and why it can be dangerous. People with the first blood type are most susceptible to bites
Also, mosquitoes are more likely to bite overweight or intoxicated people.
According to the doctor, mosquitoes choose their prey by focusing as if on an internal "thermal imaging camera", see the heat of the blood in the vessels and fly towards this signal. If a person's vessels are deep or generally have thin skin, then they are more susceptible to bites.
At the same time, Yartseva said that often the reaction from bites can be quite painful. This is due to a common allergy to mosquito bites and body area.
That is why it is important to protect yourself from insects with special sprays and aerosols during the season of the spread of insects and try to cover your skin with clothes.
According to biologist Vadim Mariinsky, mosquitoes have their own preferences when choosing a "victim" and the issue here is not the blood type.
The expert notes that the hypothesis that mosquitoes are attracted to a certain blood type is a myth.
