43 mosquito bites that is.
It wouldn't be bad if they were spread out randomly all over my body.
But NO!
They are all on my lower calves and feet.
And they itch like no one's business.
I can find no relief.
I've tried Benadryl itch cream.
I've tried toothpaste with baking soda.
I've tried nail polish.
And nail polish remover.
Aloe Vera.
I look like a leper.
No joke.
I didn't sleep last night.
So technically I look like a tired, grouchy leper.
Any other suggestions?

P.S. Maisey said to me this morning, "Mommy, I'm going to go outside and tell all the mosquitoes to quit biting our family and then I'm going to spank them all in the bum."

did you try an oral antihistamine or a topical steroid like hydrocortisone cream?

Peppermint oil or peace and calming oil from young living are amazing! Amazing! You can get it online if you don't know a dealer. It's sort of expensive but it lasts forever and can be used for a milton other things like nausea and help sleeping are a couple. I wish I still lived there I'd let you try it! Just a few seconds after I put a drop on it works! Let me know is you need more info!
