Question: Our 13 year old Grandson seems to be a magnet for biting insects. He doesn't want to be outdoors for any length of time during the summer as he gets so many bug bites. Why does one person attract so many biting insects?

Brief Answer:
kindly upload the photo.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

There are no evidences to suggest one attracts insects. Perhaps he might might have more allergic reaction to the bite than other children.
Try full sleeved shirt and pants for him, soothing agent like calamine along with antihistamine can be given.

If you have pictures of the affected area, please upload it here.

Happy to help you.
