Yes, it can be.: Most people have a variety of reactions to mosquito bites, and the symptoms change over time, depending on the amount of bites a person received. These reactions can include both immediate and delayed swelling and itching around the bite area. Localized reactions can be treated with the use of topical corticosteroid, such as Hydrocortisone cream, as well as with oral antihistamines.
