What can i do about mosquito bites on my son?

hes 21 months old, i didnt realize until now, yesterday his grandmom took him to the park & i know there isnt mosquitos in my house cause i dont have any bites, the area where he's bitten is really hard & one even has a zit on it & it had pus in it.

take him to the doctor. mosquito bites do not generally have pus unless they are infected. in the meantime, use an anti itch cream.

If it has puss then it is infected. Don't let him scratch it. Put nesporin on the one with the puss and anti-itch cream or calamine lotion on the others. If the mosquito bites are bigger than normal and red you may want to try baby benadryl. But ask a dr or pharmacist about the benadryl since he is so young.

If its just a little head (like a whitehead) it could be ant bites and not mosquito at all. Get to the doctor to be sure.
