Dear Shinie,
This is a normal response to an insect bite, especially mosquitoes, that you get. The response to fiery red ants, wasps and bees may provoke an anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) response but not against mosquitoes.
A mild potency setroid cream (betamethasone) and anti-histamines taken over 3-4 days usually suffices as treatment of skin reactions to mosquito bites in adults.
However, if you are getting bruises or dark areas on severe scratching, you need to ensure that you do not have an abnormal platelet number (low) that leads to the bruising. A complete blood count test should tell you the platelet number.
