What are the symptoms of skeeter syndrome?
Purvi Parikh, MD, an allergist and immunologist at the Allergy & Asthma Network, told Health.com that kids' reactions can vary. "Most people get some type of reaction — a small bump and a little redness — but for some people it's really extreme," she said.
If you believe your child may be experiencing skeeter syndrome, keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
- a large inflammatory reaction to a mosquito bite within minutes or hours of being bitten
- soreness, redness, or warmth around the bite site
- blistering, bruising, and even vomiting can take place in the most severe cases
