Hello, Thank you for the question.
Insect bites on the skin can cause a local inflammatory reaction that causes the body to release several chemicals that cause itching, redness and swelling of the skin. This condition generally does not require special medical treatment. You can try applying an ice pack to the skin rash that appears to reduce inflammation and relieve itching. You can also use salicylic powder or calamine lotion to reduce itching. However, if the skin rash is getting swollen and your baby is very fussy, please consult your doctor so that the doctor can do a check first before determining the right treatment for your baby.
