Why I Don't get along with Mosquitoes

One of my worst encounters with this insects was when about 11-12 years old and visiting my family in South Carolina. Each night I would go to sleep and wake up covered in bites. At first i thought was normal to get a few bites because we were in the south in the woods area, maybe even that it was the lotion that i used (sweet scented) that was attracting them. But my sister wore the same lotion and wasn't getting eaten alive like i was. Literally I can recall counting as much as 20+ bites on each limb, it was to the point that I look diseased. The question that it raised in my mind was "Is there certain blood, body scents , or even pheromones that mosquitoes are attracted to that makes them go after certain individuals over others?"
