Annual Mosquito Bite Blow-up

As most of you know from past years, when I get bitten by a mosquito it looks terrible even if I don't scratch it.  I got bitten three times on Monday when I was playing frisbee with Emmy.  The one on my leg is gigantic.  We suspect that it's because there is more blood flow than on my back or arm.  Nick read that if you put a hot compress, like as hot as you can handle, that it helps with the swelling.  I decided to give it a try since the bite was as big as a baseball.  Today the swelling is gone and it barely itches.  I'm going to have to try this on my other two bites!
