In brief: Local reaction
Mosquito bites are usually small and localized itchy red bumps on the skin that fade within a few hours to days.
Some people especially young children can have an exuberant reaction to bites which swell up quite large and look "infected." this is alarming, but generally benign and treated with avoidance and aministration of nonsedating antihistamines. They outgrow this with time.
