Dr. Zakia Dimassi Pediatrics
Unless they get infected, mosquito bites need not be treated, except for symptomatic relief using topical anti-histamine to reduce itchiness and avoid scratching. Prevention is always key: using insect repellents (discs, sprays, and skin products etc.) and keeping the windows and doors closed (as much as possible) remain the most effective ways in avoiding having mosquitoes indoors.
