My son got bit by something on his ankle friday night. It looked like a normal mosquito bite at first then when we woke up on saturday morning his whole foot ankle and part of his leg was swollen, red and bruised. We took him to the urgent care and the doctor gave him antibiotics for cellulitus which is an infection in the skin from bacteria entering through an open place even if its super small... It is looking a lot bettter, but the more my husband and I look into it it seems he is allergic to mosqites also. Everytime he gets bit he bruises almost right away and it gets red and hard where he was bit. It takes a few weeks for the mark to go away... So I was wondering if any other mommies out there knew of anything like this or have ever heard of Skeeter Syndrome? If so, what have you done about it? Does anything in particular work better? Any advice would be great, we are going to take him to his regular doctor to be further evaluated.
