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.

Gets removed: Most ocular foreign bodies are actually "on" the eye, not "in" the eye, and are removed in the office with eyedrop anesthesia. More rarely, a rapidly moving foreign object will penetrate the wall of the eye, cornea or sclera, and ends up inside. In almost all cases, this will need to be urgently removed with a surgical procedure. The prognosis for recovery depends on the nature of the injury. ...Read more
