Comment from: Citizen, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: August 22

I was bitten several years ago by mosquitos and within 10-15 minutes found it difficult to move. Fortunately, I carried a few cloves of raw garlic with me in preparation for such an emergency, and within 1-3 minutes, began to feel relief. I swear by raw garlic's powers against influenza and other powerful viruses and hope others will use it, too.
