What are the red marks on my daughter? – I know you all are not doctors or nurses but I really value other mothers input & hands on experience. My 15 month old has been bit twice by mozzies in last 6 months and reacted badly. Second time went to hospital to be told it’s an allergy.
Anyway, she woke up the other day and with a red welt on her face and arm, with what looked like a blister. Nothing like the previous mozzie bites. She is teething bad and I would say the cheek is from teeth but how to explain arm?
