    Suspicious Mosquito bites

    Advertisements
    [Itchy, bites :grrr] Do you scratch them, clean them, or leave them alone?

    If you do treat them, what do you use?

    I usually actually scratch them accidentally until the scab over. If I realize I'm scratching like a maniac I'll try my best to ignore it and leave it alone.

    If I have several in one area (same with ant bites) I will rub vinegar on my skin with a cotton ball.

    If I just have one or two I *try* to ignore them, but I unconsciously scratch the crap out of them until they scab up If I do it around DH he'll grab my hand, but if he's not there, I usually scratch until my hand is wet and I realize what I've done

    I don't know what precisely is biting me but they get really swollen and have little red lines coming out of them. They're really hot and get blisters on the top which makes me

    DB's don't appear to do much of anything, thankfully.

    I usually try Benadryl/antiseptic cream/ice or a combination of the above but the itch lingers.

    Agreed. I pick them until they bleed, then push out the juice and they scab over fast.
