A few weeks ago I had huge, extremely itchy mosquito bites. A couple days ago I was putting fresh water in the bird bath and something bit me. I didn’t even see what it was. My arm swelled up, got all red and it itches like crazy. I went on line to researcg itch remedies. I used perscription strength hydrocortisone cream, benadryl, alcohol on the bites, witchhazel, ammonia and nothing worked except an ice pack. The cold takes away the itch for several hours. I sure wish I had know that when Bob and I got those awful red ant bites in FL a couple summers ago.
Thought I would pass this tip on to you. I imagine everyone is different and may not work for you but it sure is easy and cheap to try.
