Our expert says:
Mosquito bites can cause large localised lesions with redness and blistering. This is sometimes called Skeeter's Syndrome. Mosquito bites are generally not known to induce anaphylaxis, but can cause a great deal of localised itching. A strong antihistamine tablet and application of topical hydrocortisone should solve the problem. Occasionally if you scratch and infect the mosquito bite, a secondary skin bacterial infection and cellulitis may develop and then you may need oral antibiotics.
