ok about a month ago DD was at a friends house near the woods I kept seeing mosqitos on her, I noticed a couple days later what looked like mosquito bites but then as days went by they changed to look like this http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i8...UNE2007007.jpg
then it faded to look like a mosqiuto bite again then back to a white head pimple looking thing again, its never gone away completey well over the last few days it seems to be coming back again getting red and looking like a mosquito bite again, I'm baffled as to what this is I thought it was a bad reaction to a mosquito bite but it never went away just faded to a white piple looking thing but now its flaring up again, what the heck could this be? Should I give her something? I hate to take her to doc cuz they will just load her up w/ a bunch of crap meds and HOPE it goes away.
