Apparently cutting up limes, squeezing the juice on your bites, and then rubbing the fruit on the bites helps.

A piece of cloth that’s been in VERY hot water and then placed on the bites…

Also mud, charcoal, and garlic (separately from each other) rubbed on the bites is supposed to help.

Oregano oil (you know, that common grocery store ingredient…) apparently helps as well.

Can you go get a massage or a pedicure or something? Or soak in a big bubble bath with candles and soft music?

Or go do something fun and totally not wedding related?

I hope you can relax and enjoy your day tomorrow!

Also, the best thing for itchiness is mentholatum–like Vicks Vaporub.  I couldn’t have gotten through so many weeks at summer camp without it. 

 If the itching is absolutely unbearable, apply ice until the itching subsides, then mentholatum. Just remember that sratching leads to more itching, and more reactivity.

Did the doctor say it would be ok to take a non-drowsy antihistamine now? like claratin or zyrtec?  That way you wouldn’t have to wait until tonight to get some help stopping the reaction.

I’m sorry you’re under so much stress. This too, shall pass!

I live in a very “mosquito friendly” area and my go-to remedy for mosquito bites is witch hazel. Very soothing and helps shrink the bites too.

Best wishes for tomorrow!

I am so glad a doctor came and gave his best advice. I hope you are not disappointed in that he didn’t think cortisone would help.
