Mosquito Bites on Baby

A couple of weeks back, when Maco and I went downstairs she didn't have any mosquito bites, though she did have some marks from it also, but it was just a couple or so and it was already like a bruise meaning it's been there some time. Those marks didn't happen in the same time though! Those were the mosquito bites she accumulated since June I guess.

Anwyway, just a few minutes of staying downstairs, when I carried her, Joshua's niece screamed and was shocked with the red marks  Maco got from the mosquito bites! And it was so many! We were all shocked actually! We didn't know what happened that she got that much mosquito bites! My poor baby :(

I was not sure if those were mosquito bites really, because they were big red bumpy marks and they let her seat on the sofa downstairs also, which I do not really let her because our dog, Max, usually lays there. I'm maarte like that. Heehee. So I thought it was from the dog. I was annoyed that that happened because first, she's a girl and it's not nice to have peklat on your legs, also, she won't be able to wear shorts now, and her patakawawa naman! Lastly, kawawa naman my little girl as I can see that she's irritated by it. :( She would scratch her legs on the chair if she's seated so that means that it's really itchy, and there's wound from her scratching her legs! Ugh

Good thing during her 7th/8th month checkup, we asked her pedia what should we put  on her skin in case of mosquito bites because as I've said, she already have a couple before. He prescribed us this ointment Hydrocortisone to lessen visibility of the bruise, so that's what we have been putting on her bites and some sunflower oil I got from Human Nature. This is what I do in the morning, after her bath and before sleeping; lather sunflower oil all over her legs and put on hydrocortisone cream just on the wounded part. I think the sunflower oil helped to lighten the scars. I like it!

So from now on, she can never go out our bedroom without wearing a pajama! And some mosquito repellent! We can't go out without her having some mosquito repellent! Lalo na ngayon, uso  pa naman ang dengue! Mosquito repellents are a must! I just hoped I used it on her sooner. :(

This is her legs now! Still have some scarring of course, but it's better now! Yey!
