Die beste is net om Calamine Lotion liggies aan te smeer. Dit kan minstens drie keer deur die dag gedoen word. Indien nodig kan dit ook in die nag herhaal word.

Little vinigar in bath water if you decide to bath him. The rub out with calamine / caladryl. Stopyne medicine in the evenings as it contains small amounts of anti-histamine.
