What Happens If A Mosquito Goes In Your Eye
Itching and swelling: A mosquito bite around the eye may cause sifnificant swelling, itching & discomfort depending on your particular reaction to bites. The eye is prone to swell due to the laxity of the surrounding tissue. Use cold compresses, perhaps appropriately take an antihistamine like "benadryl" & avoid scratching. Expect the eye to close in a severe case. If concerned, see pcp. Often more bark than bite! ...Read more

My eye swelled from a mosquito bite above my eye, does sitting or standing up help it, what else would help the swelling go down?
Ice: For the first few hours, use crushed ice in a baggie on top of the lid. By the next day it should be back to normal unless you have more than an average amount of allergy to the mosquito bite. You can also take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or chlorpheneramine to help. These can make you sleepy so take them late in the day. ...Read more

I got bitten by a mosquito above my eye, now my eye is swollen, how long does it last if I don't do anything to it?
I have swelling under my left eye, it looks like a mosquito bite, it doesn't hurt or itch and sometimes it looks like the skin its a little rough.
Ice, time: Mosquito bites to the eyelid can be quite itchy and sometimes painful. Since the lid skin is loose (so the lid can move properly), any edema or inflammation can spread over a large area. Use ice to help it. Sometimes you might be helped with an oral antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or chlorpheneramine. It will go away with time. ...Read more
My 15 month old was bitten by a mosquito close to his eye last night and this morning the eye is swollen shut. What can I do?
It happens: The soft tissue surrounding the eye will often puff up for a couple days after such a bite. The response is a protective one where the capillaries leak serum to dilute any toxin & prevent it from invading the blood. I would just watch the area for any redness or drainage that would suggest an infection. A 15 mo won't let you apply a cool compress, but diphenhydramine might help if it itches. ...Read more

My mum got bitten on the eye by a mosquito last night. The eye lid is now red and really swollen and she can barely open her eye. Solutions please? :)
See a doctor: See a doctor. If she rubs a mosquito onto the conjunctiva, she can get a localized anaphylactic allergic reaction that needs topical epinephrine and topical and/or oral steroids. If not, the eyelid inflammation is not what you typically see with mosquito bite, so consideration should be given to a pre-septal cellulitis crossing into the orbit from the sinuses which may need oral or IV antibiotic ...Read more

Lyme: Since she had some type of bites, it is possible what she thinks is mosquito bites may possibly be something else. It is important to visit a Dermatologist who may be able to provide you a more accurate diagnosis as there are multiple causes for annular erythemas such as Tinea Corporis, Erythema Annulare Centrifigum, Erythema Gyratum Repens, Erythema (Chronicum) Migrans, Granuloma Annulare, etc. ...Read more
How would I know if my eye is infected after an what I believe is a mosquito bite to the upper eyelid?
Bitten by mosquito/ spider that left bulls eye on arm. Next day my entire forearm covered white rash with white sparkling flakes. No itching.
Arthropod vector: Could this have been a tick? The bull's eye you describe may be erythema migrans, the classic lesion of lyme disease.

I wouldn't: A bit of antihistamine may do some good or the swelling should go down by itself in a few days. I would suggest Diphenhydramine at 2mg/kg up to every 6 hours if you choose to treat it. The us fda placed a black box warning on the use of Phenergan (promethazine) under age 2, after many episodes of apnea (failing to breathe) in younger infants. ...Read more
