Consult your pharmacist for an ointment that contains an antihistamine and a low dose of antibiotics. The antihistamine will alleviate the itching and the antibiotics will prevent secondary infection due to scratching. Your pharmacist can also provide you with an oral antihistamine.

Have you ever used those plugs where the insecticide is emitted out to repel mosquitos? Ive founded them to be really useful.
