Mosquito bites are usually very itchy and children tend to scratch them a lot. The simplest tretament is to apply calamine lotion to the bites.Another helpful treatment for mosquito bites is to apply Anthisan Cream which you can get at your pharmacy. If the bites become infected which can sometimes happen it may be necessary to use a special antibacterial ointment.You can speak to your pharmacist if this happens.
