1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Reactions are usually caused by an allergy to the mosquito saliva.
Systemic reactions like anaphylaxis are rare. Usually what we see are large local reactions: up to 10cm of induration, redness, and swelling of the skin. Topical steroids are a good choice for treatment.
