I always have tons of mosquito bites from being outside. But does anyone really know why they itch? What are they injecting into us?

To put it in lighter vein, you feel itch because you were bitten by mosquito.

They are injecting an anticoagulant to stop your blood from clotting while they are drinking it.

It is of the reason it sucks blood from various beings may be pigs buffalo, human, so the blood which it sucks will get in to our body, so the itch causes, but witin a few seconds the itch will disappear, due to ur immune system.Some times u can suffer from fever or some viral infection.
