I have tried everything to keep them off my 2 yo and we treated our yard, but she still gets them and they swell up bright red on her fair skin. Anything I can put on them to make them go down? (they don't seem to bother her too much)Answer Question

I just read that when you apply baby oil to your skin before you go outside that it repels mosquito's. I have tried rubbing dryer sheets on my kids clothing & that helps. Someone posted here yesterday that put Listerine in a spray bottle & spritz yourself & that repels them too, After I get bit, I spray Windex on a paper towel & rub it on the bite & it stops it from itching. Probably the amonia in the Windex that helps. But it works. .
