Small child, bitten by mosquitoes on arms, legs, face. Applying calamine lotion. Treatment?
My 21 Month old son was bitten by mosquito s over 70 times on his arms, legs and face. He is obviously allergic and has come up in welts and red marks and it is very itchy. I have been applying camline lotion and have tried to give him an antihistamine however he will not take it. Do you have any further suggestions. I wondered if I need to take him to the dr.
first thing use good mosquito repelent, for excessive itching calamine lotion, aloevera lotion is soothing.if itching is not controlled of redness associated with itching
i try another antihistaminic with good flvour.
