I don’t have any solution for making them go away quicker but just don’t scratch. That is when it gets worst with the surface being more exposed. But I think in the past, I have used a soothing lotion just so that they don’t itch. Can’t remember the brand off hand.

Oh wow… is it really hundreds of bites? You might want to try an oatmeal or baking soda bath to help draw out the fluid. Then see a doctor. Mosquitos can carry disease, better to be treated quickly! Good luck, I had a killer mosquito attack a few years ago and everyone yelling at me “Don’t scratch!” nearly drove me off a cliff!

Don’t scratch and no alcohol! Go get some anti itch cream, I think Neopsporin makes one with vit. E too (at least they use to) and use it. Benadryl will help with the itching too.

Happened to me last year. You can call the dr. And get a steroidal anti-itch cream. It does wonders!!

@serendipity9.8:  oddly enough, in the past I’ve slathered on shaving cream, it had aloe in it and it really helped take away the redness and swelling. I’m so sorry!



@happyface:  hahahahaha!

Tea tree oil! Get a cotton ball or some type of clean soft cloth and put it on the bites ( or your finger, whatever you prefer). You should feel some great relief, and its also a repellant for future bugs.

Oh crap, I feel for you.  I’m very prone to mosquito bites.  They just LOVE my blood, and target me over anyone else around.  Even if I only have my face and hands visible.  There is no magic trick, unfortunately, at least not for me.  I just keep a bottle of Caladryl within arms reach.  Thats the best advice I have right now. Good luck fighting those itchies!

Take an antihistamine tablet now.  I have a massive problem with mosquito bites and end up looking like a throbbing red welt – I’d take soe antihistamine and they would dissappear.  If you have any scabs left over (I know you shouldn’t scratch , but sometimes you just can’t help it…)  Get some derma blend to conceal them.  Also FYI – I have noticed that since I started taking vitamin B supplement that I don’t get bitten half as much so it may be something you’d want to add to your diet.

 EDITED – The blue alcohol really does work – as does Ouzo to soothe bites.
