my son woke up this morning with three bites on his arm and one on each leg. we were at the park last night for a ballgame, when it got buggy we left. these bites are very swolen, welts, feel slightly warmer than the rest of his skin. i worry becuase my son has had several outbreaks with mrsa (though he has not had an outbreak in 7months). i gave him a childrens chewable tablet many hours ago and just now before bed put a topical steroid cream and topicl antibiotic cream. when should i be concerned about infection vs swelling due to a normal or allergic reacting bug bite . My son has many allergies and from this reaaction i am guessing now mosquitoes is another (i was allergic to mosquitoes as a kid).
