Has bitten a mosquito or midges and has swollen eyes at the child: the first help and advice or councils to parents

The actions of the parents in this situation should be aimed at weakening the itching, removing the edema, and carefully treating the wound with an antimicrobial agent. If there is an opportunity to immediately show the baby to the doctor (pediatrician, ophthalmologist), this is the best option.

If you are not sure that you can do it as carefully as possible, try to get medical support as soon as possible. Leave everything as is, you can not – there is a risk of infection.
