My daughter seems to attract mosquitoes. She always has bites. However the last two days they have become substantially more than bites looking more like welts. More itchy and annoying than usual, redder around the area, white blistery and swollen. Then after yesterdays cluster today settling to look like typical bites. She had a similar reaction to a new one today. I am sure they are mosquitoes as she says she hears them buzzing. Should I be concerned about a developing allergy? She is otherwise healthy it is just the appearance of them that concerns me.
DS2 has exactly the same issue and the poor thing gets eaten alive. In addition I am allergic to one of the ingredients in bug repellant so am unable to apply this to hom or if DH does I can't touch him. Found the mozzie bands don't work either.
Never thought of seeing the GP about this but maybe we should?
