I used to get them b/c I played outside as a kid all the time. I had a spray medication that was in the shape of a pen. It was called “after bite the itch eraser”. It was my best friend as a kid. I think you can get it at drugstores or maybe camping supply places. It stops the itch (it might burn if you spray it on an open bite) and dries up the bite.

Another thing you can do is what my gram taught me…take your finger nail and make an ‘X’ indentation on top of the bite. She did this b/c they didn’t have medications when she was a kid that worked like the itch pen. I always found the X to work, but maybe it’s cause I believed in it.

+1 to Afterbite

Afterbite works if you use it right away. It’s ammonia. I’ve heard of people using Windex as well. It neutralizes the mosquito venom so it wont itch if you catch it fast enough. Once the bite gets red and inflamed, it doesn’t really work as much.
