Why do I get bitten more than others by a mosquito ?

Ever since I was little, mosqitoes seemed to love me. Everytime I am around them, I am bit around 20 30 times. My family notices that I am bitten more then usual. I was wondering if this happens due to my blood type , body temp, etc. I just wanna find out why this has always happened to me so bad.

Thanks for query,
There is nothing like your blood like the mosquito !
Wear full sleeves cloths,use mosqito net while sleeping.
Use mosquito repellent gel on your body.
Go for blood to rule out malaria.
Ok and bye.
