Skeeter syndrome is more common in children than in adults. It is basically our immune system reaction to the polypeptides present in mosquito saliva.

Causes Of Skeeter Syndrome

The skeeter syndrome is caused due to the injection of polypeptides from mosquito’s saliva into your blood stream. The human blood is very thick to extract, so the mosquito injects a thinning agent through its saliva and draws the human blood.
