365/242 Just bug bites

Syd has always had a bad reaction to mosquito bites. The bites swell real big and feel as hard as a rock.

She had a 6 bites from playing outside on Saturday evening. Yesterday I noticed that they were larger than usual and weeping like poison ivy does.  I dabbed them with Calamine lotion and when she woke this morning,  they were crusted over with yellow stuff so I called the doctor.

The doc looked at them and confirmed that, indeed, they were bug bites and nothing more could be done for them to make them heal any faster. She just needs to not dig at them or they might get infected.

Easier said than done I’m afraid.
