  • You can use baking soda and water: 3 teaspoon of baking soda to 1 parts water. Personally, I use Caladryl Clear on my kids and I just read the back of the bottle it can be used on children and adults 2 years and up.

  • Aveeno oatmeal is safe for all ages, it is an oatmeal based product, it also has a bath oatmeal that will aid in soothing them. You can find it in the pharmacy or baby section either one.

  • I found on http://kitchen.robbiehaf.com/HomeRemedies.html#34 it says to "apply lime juice diluted with water on bites with cotton ball" for mosquito bites.

  • There is a lotion at CVS...I forget the name of it but it is $12 a bottle and it works WONDERS. It is the only allergist aproved lotion for itching. I would just go to CVS ( I know that they have it I'm not 100% sure about Walgreens) and ask them about it.

    My DD started getting horrible hives when she was VERY young and that was the only thing that the allergist would say was safe for her. Sorry I don't remeber the name I will come back and post it after I get home and can look at the bottle!

  • I swear by this ladies, i've even told the children in my class -believe me it works. Scrub the mosquito bite with soap. Not with the washcloth, just the bar. Scrub it for a while and trust me the itch and soon the bite will disappear! Try it!

  • My mom used to do baking soda bathes. I use the baking soda paste method Cmyfantasyworld gave. I'm allergic and my welts get to be about 2-3 inches across!
