good morning, if you are very sure the swelling is due to mosquito bite only and not for any other reason, fucidin cream is okay, but if u r not sure about it, get him examined by a doctor first, because if the swelling is big and if the child is limiting its activity accompanied by fever , it can be cellulitis of the lower limb. thank you.
