Does anyone have a solution for itchy mosquito bites?
Closed

I have lived in California for many years, and we never had a mosquito problem (I used to live in New England, and we were covered in mosquito bites in the summer). Unfortunately, for the past few years, Southern California has been invaded by a non-native species, the ankle biter mosquitos, and they are taking hold here. I seem to get bitten in my sleep and I never see the mosquitoes. I have a few super-itchy bites right now. Does anyone know what to put on the bites so they will itch less?

Benadryl cream is the best thing I have found to stop the itching.

I'm in CA and my region has become a mosquito fest in the summer for the last few years. Aloe Vera works pretty well. Have also heard about using honey or toothpaste (!) but don't have any personal experience with those strange-seeming remedies.

Firstabprean has the right idea. I use Campho-Phenique on a lot of different bites when I get them, including spiders, mosquitos, gnats. I live in northern California, and we have mosquito abatement teams in many of the counties because of the West Nile Virus. I have not seen (or heard) a mosquito in quite a few years now.

I've found that Campho-Phenique works well. Apply with a cotton swab, gently rubbing it in a little. The product is oily, so keep cloth away from the site. It takes a few minutes to ease off the itching.
