In brief: Mosquito Bites

Many of mosquito saliva proteins can cause immune reactions, including allergic reactions.
Typically, however, most people have a variety of reactions to mosquito bites, and the symptoms change over time, depending on the amount of bites a person received. These reactions can include both immediate and delayed swelling and itching around the bite area and even swollen lymph node, infection also.
