Is It Supposed to Look Like That?

E has severe reactions to mosquito bites.  She welts up more than the average person, they of course itch like mad, but because her skin is so swollen they really hurt when she itches them.  We have discovered that it's just easier to cover them up with a band aid for a few days until the urge to itch has diminished a bit, so they don't have a chance to get all scabby and infected from all the scratching.  This has been great until last night when I took off her small square bandage from her lower right jaw and was stunned to find a severe reaction to the band-aid itself; a raised rash in its exact shape!  Her face now looks worse, poor girl.


  1. Tell her she is just too sweet, that's why those mosquitos like her. I get a terrible reaction too from those pesky critters.
