Mosquito bites are soft and, in the beginning, pale bump or

swelling on your skin that can become red. The bumps can appear

immediately or up to two days and they can last from a few hours up

to 10 days


The itching normally lasts longer than the swelling. If you're more

sensitive to the bites of mosquitoes the area where it itches may

be larger


Depending on the mosquito species and your personal reaction to

them the bumps and itching can vary from small pale/red bumps to a

larger red area
