Mosquito Bites!

I got a bunch of mosquito bites a couple of days ago and I'm sooooo itchy!
Does anyone know what I can/can't use to relieve the itch? Benedryl is the only thing I see on my list of ok medications to take but that seems like overkill.

Attitude is the difference between an adventure and an ordeal.

Re: Mosquito Bites!

calamine lotion?
Not sure. How annoying.
My Dr. never gave me a list of okay medicine...what else is on it.

Re: Mosquito Bites!

I'm pretty sure that on my medicine list it says you can use 1% cortisone after 13 weeks. A call to your dr may not be a bad idia to double check.

Hope the itchies go away!

Re: Mosquito Bites!

You can also use topical Benadryl. It works really well.
