My son was bite by a mesquito?
Ok so on Monday when my son woke up in the morning he had 3 bits. 1 on his face, 1 on his arm, 1 on his leg. All on the left side of his body. I thought they were mesquito bites and they looked just like a mesquito bit. Today, Wednesday, I 'm not so sure because now they are all at least the size of a silver dollar and weepy. The one on his leg actually looks like a red target and is about the size of a golf ball. Is it possible he is having a severe reaction to a mosquito bite or is it something else? Please help!

just to clearify. My son was not bitten by a tick as I live in the desert and own no animals which could carry it inside. Also, my son is running no fever and his only complaint is that they itch. I think I will try benedryl before rushing him to the doctor. He hates doctors and I would hate to do that to him unneccessarily. Not likely it is a spider either since spiders almost never bite more hen once much less 3 times.

The first aid for this is apply a tooth paste in the areas where the
mosquito bites. if persists better consult to a doctor before he can get high flu.

What you are describing (a red target) is a tick bite. Ticks DO live in the deserts and don't need animals to be transmitted, they could be picked up in grass and weeds.

However, if you insist that it isn't a tick, please keep a careful eye on it and go to the doctor if it shows no signs of improvement after a week. If could definately be a severe allergic reaction. To help him soothe the itching, apply some calamine lotion on the spots.

he could just be really allergic to mosquitoes but does it itch because if it doesnt there could be something really wrong i would get it checked out soon though

Maybe your son got bit by a tick. Lime's disease makes marks like that also. Take him to the dc. He may be realy allergic to mosquitos. going to the dc is your best bet.

Go to the doctor, the target sore is from a certain kind of tic or something. I'm not entirely sure, I saw it on a discovery channel program, but I remember they said it looks like a red target. Go to the doctor just incase.

If you are concerned about them, take him to a doctor. A medical expert would be able to pinpoint this for sure. I, personally, have always had reactions to mosquito bites. They get very large and white before they blend into the skin. I know they are mosquito bites, however. If you are unsure of what bit him... please go to a doctor.

i would see a doc. it could be an allergic reaction. mosquito bites don,t usually do this. you could give him a child portion of benadryl for possible allergic reaction.
