I've been putting a local Thai mosquito repellent on the exposed parts of my body every night at around 6pm. That's around the time they start biting.

It does not contain any DEET, I heard that it's some kind of natural formula but who knows. It's what the locals put on their skin here. It works very well.

The itching from mosquito bites isn't much of an issue because my bites disappear in a couple hours. I'm just a bit worried about catching Dengue Fever or Malaria, that's it.

Some people get bites that turn red and stay there for multiple weeks. I'm not sure what makes them so susceptible to long term effects.
