what is the treatment for spider bite?

Time

Allergies
Most spider bites cause only a small local allergic reaction. If this is all it is some anitbiotic ointment a bandaid and time (1 to 2 days) and it should be fine. If it looks like it is getting infected ( increasing redness, pain or not improving) you should see your doctor. Only a small minority of spider bites cause infection or serious skin injury.

What are some ways to prevent mosquito bites?

Repellents

Insect repellents that contain DEET (N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) preferably 20-50% or Picardin on all exposed skin are very effective mosquito repellents. Permethrin treated clothing is also very effective. Wear protective clothing, use mosquito netting if sleeping outdoors, avoid being outside between dusk and dawn.

treatment for mosquito bite on infant

Nothing specific

Baby
If the infant is not uncomfortable no specific treatment is indicated. If the baby tends to get large local reactions to insect bites ice should be put on the bite ASAP. Benadryl by mouth can also be given for extreme swelling or itchiness as well as a low dose cortisone cream.
