What do you use to stop itchy bug bites?


I went hiking yesterday and rolled up my long pants because the humidity was high and it was real hot. About an hour later I noticed at least 20 bug bites all over my legs. Now today they are starting to itch! What can I use to stop them from itching until they heal and go away?

    I just got back from the store with some Calamine lotion and trying it now. I will also try the vinegar. Thanks!

    I will try the apple cider vinegar and the regular vinegar since I have both on hand in the pantry. The pharmacist did recommend some benedryl as well. Thanks!

    Yes I had on dark yoga pants and the mistake I made was rolling up my pants to just above the knees because it was so humid. I never do this and also never get bit. But this time I was a buffet. I have about 50 bites on both legs!
