Insect bites: I assume by mentioning a way to improve your immune system toward mosquito, you mean allergy shot for mosquitoes. It looks like you have large local reactions to mosquito bites. If there are no systemic reactions like hives, difficulty breathing, belly pain or other GI symptoms, we usually don't check for allergy or try to desensitize you to mosquitoes. You can try otc topical cortisone as needed.
