Swollening of skin

If any mosquito bites, the area around it is swollening. It does not last for 45 mns and it is paining when I touch that. Is this skin allergy?

Greetings. This could be mosquito bite hypersensitivity and you need to avoid bites or practise prevention measures to prevent this allergy - by using repellant creams. Once it has occurred and if it's itching- you could use oral anti histamines as prescribed by the qualified dermatologist near you. Also calamine lotion will provide temporary relief. Hope this helps. Warm regards
