Friday night my 11mo DD must have got attacked by mosquitos in her room. When she woke Saturday morning, I noticed them all down her arm but they just looked like normal mossie bites. Nothing to worry about.
A few hours later I noticed they were looking really red and starting to welt up. They looked like burns! I was starting to worry & talking about taking her to docs if they got any worse. But she wasnt itching them & they didnt seem to bother her in any way, which I thought was s.
Today they have calmed down a bit & dont look as agravated. But now they have a little head on them and some are weeping a bit.
Poor little babe

Yes, DS1 had awful reactions to mozzie bites, which included weeping blisters as big as 50cent pieces that looked like burn blisters, and his limbs swelling up sometimes to twice their normal size. So gross. The good news is, he grew out of it by the time he was 4.
I found those mozzie plug in's really helpful, mozzies hate them!

My nephew has this type of reaction to mozzies hes allergic If i were you i would get it checked tho, just to be safe and the doctor might have some suggestions on how to get the swelling down or prescribe something for her

Yes, I'm allergic.
It tends to lessen with age, but when I was a baby my entire arm would swell and go red from just 1 bite if I were to be bitten on the arm.
These days they tend to swell to about 20c-50c piece sizes.

yep, the weeping sores get a crust on them and look awful for a few days. I have tried the mosquito click you can buy but haven't had it long enough (and sometimes don't get to the bite early enough) to see if it makes a difference

Yep both of my kids react to mozzies like that. I give an antihistamine like polarimine and some numbing gel and ice... Living in qld it happens most days of the week!
