Bug bites?

Post by LittleCritter on Fri 31 Aug 2018, 11:56 am

Hi,

Is it possible that a mouse can be bitten by a mosquito (or similar bug) and have the same inflammatory reaction as humans do (raised itchy lump?)

Schmee has a lump above his ear which is either very itchy or very uncomfortable as he scratches at it constantly. I have a house-call vet coming to see him. I am concerned it's a tumor, but with all the itching (and how all of a sudden it appeared) I am wondering (hoping) maybe it's something simple like a bug bite? Regardless, I want to find something safe to use to relieve the itching and keep him from creating an open wound there, too....

Tumors are usually in the lower body, but it isn't impossible for it to be a bug bite. Good luck..

It may be an abscess. Let us know what the vet thinks. Smile
