Help!

Question: how does one make the 17 mosquito bites she received while camping over the weekend STOP itching?!!!

(Attempts to relieve the discomfort have resulted in some awkward encounters at work this morning...and that's all I'm going to say about that.)

Eliza came home with a ton on her feet. Matt has this stuff called Sting-Eze and it seems to be helping. I think you can find it wherever they sell camping stuff. Plus it is clear so you dont look silly like you have calamine lotion all over. Good luck!

I just counted mine and i have 12, even though I put bug spray on. Those little suckers!

Hypnosis has been shown to 'cure' itching.

You've got to get this stuff from Italy. Sklyer and Elise should pick it up for you on their trip. I can get you the name if you want, let me know. I'm so allergic to mosquito bites and this is the only thing that works!

Put Duct tape over it and scratch the phantom itch, then when you feel like its just too much, take the duct tape off painful style, but it will actually be relief because it will be taking away the itch!

-This is a tip from my fiancee Abi who was explaining it to me earlier today from her experience with bug bites
