Strange Circular Mosquito bite rash

Postby melkaneshiro » Wed, 24 Aug 2005 11:40 pm

My daughter and I have had these weird circular rash reactions to mosquito bites. Is this common here? They seems to get worse as the days go by and if one cannot restrain from scratching eventually they become a circular sore. What's the deal? Are these anything to worry about? They itch like crazy!

Any advise?

Some mosquito bites can be worse than others. My sis and daughter both suffer from the same sort of reaction to mosquito bites. Best to take an antihistamine tablet or syrup while could reduce the itch, swelling and inflammation a bit. The other alternative would be to use an mild steroidal cream like hydrocortisone 1%, apply twice daily sparingly.
