    Why do mosquito bites itch?

    Honestly I have no idea but i think that its because of the small way with its teeth and maybe it may tickle on you for a bit. For e.g. when a baby bites you with its small teeth, you will most likely feel a tickle since the baby is small and so is its teeth. Answer from my grand father: It can make a reaction into you like an alligy because it sticks its needle like nose, into your skin.

    Can mosquito bites be dangerous?

    I say that it can be dangerous because when it itches, you will most likely scratch it and if you have sharp nails, you will hurt yourself basically. Also my grand father told me that the mosquito can transfer germs into another person. Another e.g. is that if a mosquito bites a sick person, than bites another person, it transfers the sickness to that person.

    I would put some Savlon on it and i would also put a band-aid on it so the Savlon can stick the itch part onto the band-aid then i would just be left with the spot. Which will go away in a few days so i just have to be patient for a bit for the end. Ice can also reduce the itch because the ice is so cold.
