My daughter keeps getting mosquito bites and they itch a lot and turn red and swell. If it's on her face then she will have upper eyelid swelling! Any home remedies for this? She doesn't seem to be bothered by it much but i feel really bad when I look at her. Does anyone else have a toddler that reacts this way?

The reaction to mosquito bites is actually an allergic reaction, and different people react differently to them. Sometimes an antihistamine can help reduce redness and swelling. Are you sure it's mosquitos and not bed bugs or some other bug? Since you have it in quotation marks in the subject of your post, I'm not sure what you mean by that. You should try to remove the source of the bugs, or limit her exposure to them.
