Question

My grandson got bitten by a mosquito just over a week ago. He got blood poisoning and could hardly walk. How could that have happened?

Answer

I think there what was happening was the mosquito was providing a route of entry to a bacterial infection. It was probably Staphylococcus aureus or strep can sometimes do that.
