My mom used to put peroxide or bleach on them.  I'm allergic to them, so they got really bad.  Then we found out I was allergic to bleach.  Maybe try some alcohol, or benedryl.

Oh I feel your pain, I got bit a few times this summer. They hurt and itched and frove me crazy! I put some anti itch cream on it and made a paste out of baking soda n water.

powdered detergent will get rid of them if poured on the hill we've done this several times while camping
