Very itchy insect bites

Help! i've got about 13 insect bites. And they are incrediably itchy. I put some special insect bite stuff on, but they still itch when another part of my body touches the bites then i start scratching again. Last night i put some insect repellant over my arms and legs before bed. But i think a nasty nat, or mosquitoe(sP) still came into my room and bit me. I'm sure theres a nat or mosquitoe(sp) that stays and hides in my room til night time when it comes out and bites me and my sister.

Re: Very itchy insect bites

Could be bed bugs...They around the seams of the edge of the mattress during the day. Or between the mattress and box springs.. If the bites are just in one are though, it sounds like a spider..perplexing...

Re: Very itchy insect bites

so what are you supposed to do, how are you supposed to get rid of bed bugs? as you can't put the mattress in the washing machine, heehee.

Re: Very itchy insect bites

First you should figure out if that is what it is..... look for them hidden near the piping that holds the seam together on the side of the mattress, and between the mattress and Box springs.

Re: Very itchy insect bites

Benydryl Gel works well to stop the itch. Cortisone cream works well too.
Baking soda made into a paste using water and applying will help neutralize the bite area.
