  • Are you drinking enough water? And are you sure you are not dealing with mosquito bites? They sound a lot like what you are describing.

  • Are you sure it's not poison oak or ivy?? I had what I thought were some mosquito bites at first. They itched a little then got worse. It turned into a huge itchy patch over a few days and was the most miserable experience!! I tried benedryl, clalamyn lotion, hydrocortisone creme- finally went to the doc who said it was poison ivy or oak. The itching was worse than chickpox!! Good luck!

  • I use aquafor for my children. They get the same way when the heat comes.
