comparison of mosquito bites

California mosquito bites are pink and soft and about the diameter of a pencil eraser. They last about a day.

Texas mosquito bites are the same diameter, but they are red and become hard lumps and they last 2 weeks or more.

Virginia mosquito bites start small but grow over a few days to the size of a quarter. Or 2 quarters side by side. Or bigger, like this one. My boss in Virginia says they are called Asian Tiger mosquitoes. Back in CA, my skincare facialist could not believe this was a mosquito bite. She took a picture to show her clients and convince them not to scratch.

Iyyy! That looks big and itchy. We have no itch cream but I don;t usually get bit. Hopefully that doesn't happen often!
