Brief Answer:

Not due to mosquito bite

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached image. I understand your concerns.

It is possibly due to some bacterial infection and not due to mosquito bite. However, does not seem to be a cause for concern. It should gradually normalize in 3-7 days.

You could also apply some emollient like calamine lotion or some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion.

You can give some antiallergic like cetirizine drops once daily and apply some antibiotic like Neosporin.

It might take a few days to recover and so you need to be patient.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
