  • The histamine in your body I think makes it itch! How I hate that! Vinegar, baking soda paste? And thing else in your medicine cabinet? I had some itch cream stuff but its no longer made! Good luck!

  • Benedryl makes an anti itch allergy cream, and hydrocortizone works as well. Also ice packs may help relieve the itch.

  • Cortizone 10, always works on bug bugs or itchy skin for me. Soothes skin very quickly
