Thanks for the query.

Mosquito bites usually cause an allergic reaction. You can apply Moxifloxacin(Vigamox) eye drops four times daily to prevent any secondary infection. Also wash your eyes thoroughly with water. You can take antihistamine like Tab. Levocet twice daily for two days.

Hope your eyes get better soon.I will be available for any further queries if you have any.

Best regards,
Dr.Mihir Shah
