Hi ! You can apply cold compresses and apply coconut oil for soothing. If they are very severe then show a Dermatologist in person.

Thanks for your query. In addition to Dr. Kapadia's advice I would suggest you to apply "Calamine lotion" to mosquito bites and take antihistamines like Cetirizine/ Loratidine (once daily) for prompt relief.
Next Steps
Please consult a Dermatologist if above measures are not successful as sometimes insect bites need application of topical steroids.
