anyone on T4 thyroxine get bitten alot

Hi just a thought.....I get bitten by moscitoes on holiday when none of my friends do.I mean they eat me animal fleas,just one flea on a cat or a dog and they find me, no one else ! I thought it could be the chemicals in my body could give off a stronger odour making me more attractive lol

I don't think our thyroid meds do that as I'm the one who never gets bitten, while everyone else suffers... I think it's more likely your body has a smell that bugs like more than others but I know they don't like me at all!
