Re: Itch Mites : Nasty Nasty
[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Yeah, Benedryl is an antihistamine, and intended for allergic reactions (a lot like the reaction to a mosquito bite). Unless you're having that crazy kind of hive-like reaction, it wouldn't do much good.
The research I did suggested that using a lice shampoo would help (you can use it on your skin, but I'd be careful with your privates, it may be too harsh). Borax makes sense, too, when you think about it. But really, you should go to a doctor, get a good diagnosis and treatment plan. It may be that there is a prescription medication that would be more effective.
