One tiny mosquito. One huge reaction.
I've had about 10 mosquito bites in my life and this is the third to swell up like this. Actually, by the time I went to bed last night this bite looked even worse.
Mommy talked to the nurse at my pediatrician's office yesterday, and she said that Benadryl is our only course of action unless the bite site begins weeping, I start running a fever, or my actual eye turns red. Thankfully, though, none of those things have happened.
Mommy is no stranger to swelling when it comes to mosquito bites. She's always been one of those "quick swellers", herself. My swelling, however, goes above and beyond what Mommy is used to...which leaves both her and Daddy feeling very nervous.
So, to help put my Mommy and Daddy at ease, I decided to solicit advice from you. Any one out there have experience with similar reactions to normally-innocent-bug bites? If so, what remedies have worked for you?
