Where have you been bitten by mosquitos?
Let me see, ouch, it is big "bite". You need to apply some cream to get heal quickly.

    As both you and owlman have written, it's a "bite", in my slice of the mosquito world too.

    I agree that the localised allergic skin reaction many people have to mosquito bites is often referred simply as a bite. But other terms can be used, such as bump, welt, and weal (or wheal).
