My son, who turns 4 tomorrow, turns out to have an allergy to mosquito bites. I've always put something on him to deter bites, but he's spent so much time playing in the sprinkler this hot summer, a few mosquitoes have managed to find him. He got bit on the cheek Sunday, and now he has a huge purple knot crowding his eye. He's now on oral antihistamine, topical cream and a pain reliever when he needs it. He's handling it fairly well, although he was pretty embarrased when his face swelled up that first day. Hopefully the swelling will go down enough by tomorrow that we can take our planned trip to the zoo without fear of him being too ashamed to leave the car. Prayers welcome, as always. :-)
