don't put witch hazel in your eyes though!

Deepest sympathies re bites. I have a tiny idea what it's like as I left the bedroom (a room in a house featuring a bed... oh never mind) window open and a starving family of mosquitos sucked my upper body dry. A dozen large red bites staggering across my shoulder like a drunken tattoist with a knitting needle and no ink... hmm, perhaps the metaphor needs a little more work.

Anyhoo, anti-histamine cream does little for them as just rubbing it in wakes them up, but a non-drowsy one-a-day allergy pill stops the worst of it, and saves a lot of time. I've been recommended very dilute tea-tree oil or witch hazel too, but haven't really needed them.

Tried E45 lotion? :( Itching is a bitch, hope you feel better soon...
