Re: OMGness, what is this????

I'm probably late to the party here, but DS1 has bad reactions to mosquito bites that look just like that. The doc says it's common and nothing to worry about. She gave me prescrition strength hydro cortisone to put on them. If I catch the bit immediately after the mosquito gets him, it almost doesn't swell at all. Otherwise, he gets giant hot welts for a day or two. Then if he scratches too much, I have to put bandaids w/ neosporin on to help with infection. It sounds worse than it is. Fortunately, central Texas is drier and has lots of bats for eating mosquitoes, so I only have to deal with it occasionally! Hoping for the best Mama!
