What's OK to put on bug bite?

It doesn't seem to itch her, but it's a pretty nasty big red bump under her left eye that's been there for a few days already. I'm afraid if I put anything on it to clear it up she will rub her eye and get the meds in her eye. Any suggestions?

  • if it's near her eye, I wouldn't put anything on it except maybe some ice. Like you said, wouldn't want her rubbing the medicine into her eye.

  • Make a paste out of baking soda and a few drops of water. Put that on the bit and allow it to dry. It should help.
