Barb - go to Walgreen's or CVS and pick up the feminine hygiene anti-itch cream. I got the store brand and it works just as well as the national brand. Takes the itch right out of them bites.

Feminine hygiene itch cream? That is a new one on me. Every summer I get eaten alive by these microscopic spiders. They get me the second I go outside. The bites itch like hell, ooze. I haven't found anything that helps with the itch. I will give your suggestion a try.

The worst place for a mosquito bite is between the toes.
OMG that drives me nuuts.

Or... on the elbow.

Mom used to take her cigarette, and flick off the ashes so that there was just the hot glow, and she would hold it like just about touching the bite for as long as she could stand it! She said it killed the virus that was injected by the skeeter. Then she would rub Ben Gay on the bite. She swore it stopped the itch forever.

My brother and I would spit on the bite, and sprinkle salt on it. That worked for about an hour.

Geeze....I'm getting itchy just thinking about bites.

I always get bit in the privates or on the rear end. Try scratching that in public.

The little critters crawl right up my legs to where the sun don't shine. One summer I had over 100 bites at the same time. I thought I was going to go insane from all the itching.

It worked! Good for you.

A friend told me about that stuff a long time ago, when our grandkids were babies. You know how horrible the bites welt up on little kids. Nothing could stop them from scratching. But the Vagisil did it every time. I use to keep a tube (wrapped in duct tape) in the glove box of Dane's '65 Impala SS for when we went to car shows. First sign of a bite and I'd slap some on and the itch was gone.

Works for all kinds of itchy stuff, not just what it was created for, but just about any skin itch.
