Children, more than adults, are prone to mosquito bites(1). That’s because a bug bite harms a child’s immune system, although the effect fades as he or she grows up(2). Mosquito bites are common, although the effect may vary from one person to the next(3).
It is the children, too, who react more intensely to mosquito bites(4).
A big part of their skin swells and turns reddish. They may have hives and swollen lymph nodes, therefore it would be best to seek out immediate medical attention.
It’s interesting to note that mosquito bites come only from the female species(5). It is they who need blood to produce eggs. They may bite as much as 20 times before finding a small blood vessel and attacking it.
