    Mosquito Bite turned rash
    An_241710 posted:
    My son (2yr old) is allergic to mosquito bites. A couple of weeks ago he got bitten which did the normal fluid swelling only this time after the bump disappeared a rash formed in the area where the bump use to be. Which is right were the hand connects with the arm. This area continued to form small bumps and now the bumps are spreading all over his body (still truly the worse where the mosquito bite was). These are rash like raised little hard bumps on the arm but rash like (like an allergic reaction to strong detergent) on the rest of the body and continuing to spread. At times he itches and I apply aveeno cream to those itchy areas but overall, acts like nothing is wrong. No other symptoms are shown. Has anyone ever seen this? Thanks
