I'm a worried mama! My son got bite by a mosquito last night right by the corner of his eye. This morning when he woke up his eye is practically swollen shut!! The doctor's office doesn't open for another hour :( When he gets bit on the arm or leg, his bites usually get a little swollen (more than a normal mosquito bite) and sometimes get scabby. His skin is pretty sensitive. Do you think he is allergic? Should I take him in right away!? This doesn't seem normal!! He keeps saying "eye" "eye" (he's 2).

If it swells to the point he has trouble seeing I would take him to the dr. Otherwise some Benadryl will help. My daughter and I get really huge welts from mosquitoes its awful for us this time of year.
