I wish the mosquitoes didn't think my kids are so very tasty.
It is common for Asian kids to have these bites get as big as a quarter or more and they take months and months to totally heal and disappear.
These "skid-e-ios" bites as Jammer calls them happened in our back yard yesterday. We've had an over abundance of rain these past weeks and obviously their population has gotten way out of control. I don't like using products with DEET in them on the kids unless it is completely unavoidable. I've picked up a different one without DEET to try.
This house goes through more than a normal supply of bandaids during the summer as we attempt to keep the kidlets from scratching the bites but if anyone out there has some other topical aid to suggest that will help avoid my babies from getting bit in the 1st place, I'd be most grateful.
