Doctor :   Hi
User :   I am very used to getting mosquito bites. I tend to get them tons more than my friends I am with. I have one bite, however, that is unlike the rest. Instead of being small and bright red and hard, it's the size of a saucer, light pink, soft, and hot to the touch. Could is just be an odd reaction to a mosquito bite?
Doctor :   is there any pain?
User :   Lots and lots of itching, and tender if I press at it, but alone, no.
Doctor :   where are you from?

User :   I am originally from LA, but recently moved to Michigan for school
Doctor :   where is this lesion on your body?

User :   Left upper arm
Doctor :   since how many days you have this?

User :   I got it last night
User :   Along with four other normal bites
Doctor :  
this may not be a reaction to the mosquito bite
