How long do mosquito bites itch?

A few days usually

Itching
Occasionally, people will have a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction to mosquito bites. I am one of those people. The initial redness (relatively mild) lasts a day or two, followed by persistent redness and itching that goes on for a week or more. Hydrocortisone cream is your friend under these circumstances.

It could be anything from hair follicle irritation to a herpetic outbreak. It's off to the dermatologist for you.

When I get a mosquito bite, it itches like crazy, and immediately turns into a large, red since I was small. could this indicate an allergy, what to do?

Mosquito bites

Allergies
A large local reaction to insect bites including mosquito bite does not need allergy treatment. You could apply cold compress, topical OTC hydrocortisone. If the swelling is large and painful, you might need to see a local physician to be evaluated. If you develop systemic symptoms like hives, belly pain, difficulty breathing with mosquito bites, it is dangerous and you should see an allergist.

I have this flare up on my skin affecting the right side of right buttock it is like little raised bumps that look like mosquito bites it itches bad I have tried anti Iitch creams nothing is working?

A few possibilities

Herpes_zoster
If you have been exposed to new substances, this could be plain old contact dermatitis; try to find what might be irritating your skin. Shingles would be a bad case scenario to maybe get checked out. The worst case scenario would be a recurrent rash like that which could represent herpes on your rear end that keep coming on over and over: Valtrex would be the treatment for that or the shingles.

Help what is wrong with my B-Girl My girl was bitten this past weekend.Not a mosquito.the bite was as big as her palm.It was hurting her,Now it Itches the bite was on her r.outer thigh.she said that her inner r thigh is itching A LOT.She has been with Dia

The

The skin lesion you are describing might be an allergic reation to an insect bite and she might be having an allergic reaction to it. Unfortunately skin lesions you describe can also represent a MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staph) infection. The symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea and chills make me more worried of the serious skin infection. Please realize that this can be quite serious. I hope she is still well at this time. She really should be seen by her pediatrician, or family physician as soon as possible to make sure this more serious infection is not a problem.

How do i get rid of my swollen finger from last nights mosquitos? Itches a lot too!

Try Ice

If you ice the fingers with the mosquito bites, they will be less itchy. This has been the most helpful "at home" treatment for itchy mosquito bites.

i work at a pizzeria from 10am to10pm. As a cook .i where sweats allday. Im always sweating.by sunday on my day off I where shorts.my legs look like ive ben bitten by mosquitos.but l think its like zits. Sometimes my legg itches.what do you think?

Sweatglands and heat

Open-uri20120905-14768-127rmpv
It seems that you have heat rash--the excessive heat you endure cause to sweat gland to overwork and thus swell and inflammed causing the appearance and itching as you described--similar to picture here. To improve, you must keep cooler--sweat pants have elastic bands at bottom closing in the air/heat. Wear breathing-pants, let air in. Use a cooling fan. If worsens, consult doc. Good luck

Clindamycin rash side effect lasts how long? Itches!!!!! Like hives?

Days

Cleocin
It may last several days. In the meanwhile, try taking antihistamine up to 4x daily to see if this helps. If not, see your doctor.
