Allergic to mosquito bites, big red patches of hives, dried brown red spots after subsiding. Any topical cream ?

I am getting allergic to mosquito bites. I find big patches of hives which are red and I get several of them all over the exposed skin area. As the hives subside, I see dried brown/red spots and as they heal they leave behind tiny skin coloured spots that are visible under light. Kindly advise for a topical cream or if I am supposed to take antihisthamines

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

In my opinion you might require both anti-histamine medication as well as topical mosquito repellent creams. These should be used on exposed skin and last through the day, so they should keep you protected through the day.

Also, please consult a doctor when you experience these hives, as a doctor would be able to best diagnose this condition.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
