Discussions that mention benadryl

Children's Health board

:) Have you tried soaking in a bath of baking soda at night. It calms the skin and feels soft and stops the itch. I do it every night cause our child is the same. He is 5 and scratches till it bleeds and big big welts. I also heard making a paste of oatmeal is good too. Our son is autistic and doesnt like the texture but Aveeno itch creme is milder than afterbite cause afterbite has ammonia in it, hurts like a bugger if it's open. My child got all red and swollen after that. Benadryl is good at night to help them sleep too. I hope this helps you.:wave:
