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.

Dr. Doanh Nguyen answered:

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.

How long do mosquito bite reactions happen?

Duration?

Mosquito_bite
Local pain, itching, and redness of the skin are typical after a mosquito bite. There is usually an immediate wheal and flare response that peaks at about 20 minutes, or a hard, itchy, bump that peaks at two to three days and resolves over the ensuing days to weeks.
