    I've been getting mosquito bites all summer, but now I have one on the back of my leg, felt myself get bit two nights ago.

    Now it's about 4" x4", and getting bigger, I've used hydrocortisone, took benadryl. Nothing helps, any advice?

    Can you take a picture of it? I'm wondering if it's a lyme rash.

    You can google rashes or bites to see if it looks similar.

    Just to be safe...

    ...it's a mosquito bite? Sounds like something else, unless you're having an allergic reaction because of too many bites. I would google pictures of bug bites and try to make a match. (or spider bite?)

    Did you try a baking soda paste? Just mix baking soda and water so it's pasty and spread over the area. It certainly couldn't hurt anything.

    Keep us posted.

    I was outside at 11pm and felt a sting. The area itches like a dang mosquito bite and the color is even all over, the bite you can feel on one side. That makes me think it's a mosquito and not lyme tic. Plus it's on my upper thigh and I was standing the entire time.

    I put the picture up, it's hard to take one of your leg. The red spot is where I got bit and scratched.

    Might I suggest this since it works for me and I'm super allergic to mosquito bites ( got a lot in GA): Soak a gauze pad in Witch Hazel and sit or lay with the pad on your leg for a while. It takes the fire and itch out of the bites. Just really soak the gauze and keep it wet while it's on your leg.

    thanks, will watch for those things, unfortunately as I said to my hubby, simptoms to look out for sometimes kinda match CFS - fever, pain.
