As efficient as shouting "Boo!" in front of the mosquitoes. If Muskol with its 12% DEET content doesn't work, nothing will, except maybe a burqa soaked in Muskol.

As the person who commented before me said, some people when bitten by a mosquito wind up with baseball sized welts from it due to their severe reaction. Some other people can have a reaction so severe it causes the whole limb/area to swell. So for example, they get one mosquito bite on their foot and their foot swells to at least twice it's normal size. So it isn't just that some people want to be special, it is that some people actually do have a major reaction to mosquito bites.

They probably didn't realize that they were allergic to mosquitos and would therefore actually need bug spray. If they didn't have the allergy they would just have to deal with minor discomfort from the bites (we are going to ignore any possible LIME disease risks or the like for now) that could likely be handled by some afterbite or a smidgen of vinegar and baking soda.

There are many natural anti bug sprays and oils that work better than most bug sprays like mint, lemon grass, etc. so do some research and go out and enjoy nature while its still there.

OP probably didn’t realize it was bug infested until they got there and saw all the insects.

If the OP is a minor they may not have had any choice in the matter. That said you are actively assuming they knew about both allergies before going. They may have known they were allergic to bug spray but not realized they were allergic to mosquitoes or vice versa.

Cover the area around you in pure citronella essential oil and put a little on your clothes (don't get too much on your skin though), maybe light some citronella candles too to get the oil in the air
