Answer time- rashes and bumps

So what did you think?

They are mosquito bites!!! I've seen this many times where are parent is convinced the kid has the chicken pox or the measles..

What to do about mosquito bites?
You don't need to do anything. You can give benadryl if they are very swollen. You can also use benadryl cream or hydrocortisone cream for itching.

If they are really swollen, warm to touch, getting more swollen or you have a fever then you might want your healthcare provider to look at it. Sometimes you can get a secondary skin infection from a bug bite that needs to be treated with antibiotics.

More quizzes? What do you think?
