Hi,my grandson (5) saids...

Hi,my grandson (5) saids a mosquito bite him on his penis this morning. He said its been hurting all day. It is swollen and red. I put a little alcohol on it an hour ago and he saids it feels better now. Would benadryl help?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No, this just happened today

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in the child's medical history you think the doctor should know?

He had mosquito on his eye lid a month ago that was also swollen and lasted for a few days, but went down with benadryl

Dear,

I am sorry to hear about insect bite on your son's penis.

Well, you can give him Benadryl. That would help in itching/swelling from allergy or bite.

Mild steroid cream like hydrocortisone can help too. It can be applied once a day.

Applying an ice pack would also be useful.

If he complains of much pain or if the swelling continues to increase please get him examined by a doctor.

Most likely he should be fine, and such mosquito bite can be easily managed at home.

Hope this helped

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
