Dark spots on your child's skin from mosq. bites??
Hey Guys, I hope it's okay to post this here. I posted it to another group, but it's not an active group so I thought someone here might have some knowledge on this.
I'm hoping someone will have some experience and advice for me with this. My 3 year old is starting to get dark spots on her skin whenever she gets mosquito bites or has a blister on her foot (things like that). Even though the bites will be healed it will still leave the darker spot where the bite was. I'm wondering if they ever go away and if not, is there anything I can put on them to lighten it or prevent it.
Her dad has very dark spots from old mosquito bites, etc... and they are very noticeable. I feel bad for saying it, but they look bad to me. He's always telling me to find something to put on her so she doesn't get those spots too, but what? His never go away. We live way down south where the humidity is terrible and so are the mosquitos so it's pretty much unavoidable, even with spray, that she's going to get bit. But is there anything I can do to lessen the appearance of them? I don't want her to have them all over like her dad does.
Any ideas I'm open to. I'm sure there have to be others thinking about this too. So what do you do, if anything? Thanks ahead of time!
