Allergic to Mosquito Bites?

My whole life I have been getting the worst reaction to Mosquito bites. They swell up HUGE and then when the swelling goes down they look like this, and hurt/burn/itch.

I have dermagraphism so I am not sure if that adds to the problem, but why do they get like this? Am I allergic? I have made sure not to scratch but I am going crazy it is so uncomfortable. I got these on Friday and they are still this bad!

The worst part is that they love to bite me, so if I forget to put on repellent I am miserable for at least a week.

Any idea how to make these better? I have tried cortisone cream, benadryl, burn cooling gel, and Tea Tree Oil. Nothing helps! I want to rip my skin off right now!
