!!Bites the size of half dollars!! why so big?

My kids got chewed up last night by these huge mosquitoes. They are different this time. The bites are HUGE! Rock hard and tight. The kids don't seemed bothered but they looked pretty bad. Should I just leave them? Why are they so big this time?

  • My twin boys had a bad allergic reaction to mosquitos like that when they were toddlers. Scared me so bad I took them to the emergency room. Dr just said they were more allergic than most and that they would be okay. They eventually grew a tolerance to them and don't have those types of reactions to them anymore.

  • My daughter has had them and they do go away after a few days. There's no worry.
