Is it possible for a person to have a bad reaction to mosquitoe bites?
We got back from camping over a week ago. While camping, me and my 5 year old got bit up terribly despite all the deet filled repellant we used. We always get bit up bad. Of course, my bites were completely gone in a matter of days.
Hers on the other hand are getting huge! They are still itching her terribly (she hasn't been outside at all to get bit up since getting home, so I know they're not new) and they are getting bigger. And real red.
I'm just wondering if it's possible for people to be allergic to them.
BTW, I've been giving her benedryl by mouth for the itching, but how long must I continue that? I'm thinking of taking her to the peds tomorrow to see if they can do something.
