Yes all the time. We live where there are lots of mozzies. Try using stingos, tea tree oil or an calamine lotion.
Bath definitely helps too. Water washes the itch away.

Also bath her in some detol or pinetarsol. I second using an antihistamine like palaramine also. And yes you can get an antiseptic based cream from your local chemist (I'm in Nrth QLD too and they are bad)

Yep mine do that still and I'm now 28. Mine also go hard. My DD1 has unfortunately gotten the same sensitivity as me so has the same thing happen.

Yes, my son has a reaction to bites exactly like that and I did as a child too, I grew out of it and barely get bitten now

DS is also allergic and ends up with bites like that. We use Zertec for the reaction and dermaid cream to stop the itch for him. Three times he has needed antibiotics when the blisters burst and got infected, once this was via a drip so involved an overnight stay in hospital.

Yep my eldest daughter swells up really bad. One actually took over her whole foot once.
My GP told me a good trick with bites. Once you've been bitten then get some hand soap(pump bottle one not cake of soap) and put some straight over the bite, it takes the heat, redness and swelling out. Don't rub it in just press it on the area.

Yes. My DD has bad reactions to them. I went to the Chemist and got some liquid antihistamine and the swelling had gone down significantly the next morning. Used it for 4 days as per instructions and they have nearly gone. He also gave me some cream which has helped too but can't thin what either are called and just trying to get her to sleep at the moment. But if you head to a chemist, they can give you something to help.

Looks nasty poor girl
My daughter gets a similar reaction when we travel overseas and we give her antihistamine to help relieve pain and inflammation. Ice packs helped too as they became very hot and fluidy. Hope they settle down for her

Hers don't go quiet thus red but defiantly get welt go pink/red and get a small pimple like dot in them
