Has anyone's baby had a bug bite on face ? My poor little guy does, right by his mouth, didn't seem to bother him but it's red and puffy, I don't see a injection site but it's bothering me more then him... Maybe a flea bite :( how long till it goes away? First bug bite :( and more to come I'm sure..

My older two got bug bites on their faces as babies. I kept the rest of them covered and bug sprayed up during mosquito season, so the bugs went to their faces.
Mosquito bites usually go away within a day or two with babies that don't scratch, idk about other bites.

Poor thing. My Dd1 is allergic to literally any insect that stings. Hopefully your baby is not. The surrounding area of her bites would swell horribly. :-/ glad it doesn't bother him.

It should go down by tomorrow.  If its still as swollen, call the doctor.

Yes.
The length of time will vary based on a number of factors.
Hope baby heals quickly.

I would just watch it, it should clear up on its own.

When dd was little stuff like that really bothered/concerned me, and didn't seem to bug her at all.

All 3 of my kids got bad baby acne that I thought was bug bites. We had the house checked and stuff but there were no bed bugs or anything. One time I had the dr lol at it and she said it was like an infected baby pimple.

My kids rarely got or get bug bites.

Hope it goes away fast.
