This is how and why it happens:

Well, the female mosquito is to blame as the male mosquito does not bite. As she lands on your skin and sticks her proboscis (mouth part) into you, some of her saliva enters your skin. It contains proteins that prevent your blood from clotting thereby allowing her to suck blood with ease until her abdomen is full.

After she has bitten you, some saliva remains in the wound. Proteins from her saliva evoke an immune response from your body causing the injured area to swell. Hence, it is the mosquito
