Red face k, so this is really random...

But ever since I came home from camping, I have been itching like crazy cause of all those bug bites...

anyone know of a good bug bite cream or ointment brand to help them go away?

Srry, so random for a fish forum, but hey, this is the lounge!

Just from the commercials on TV, apparently Gold Bond has bug-bite itch cream. And judging by what my friends have said, it works, too.

Whenever I'm that itchy, I just ice it, and the itchiness goes away.

Cortisone-10 (sp??) works well, also if you have chiggers they burrow under your skin so if you put nail polish over the itchy spot it suffocates them.

Ice works for me too..

But another thing that makes them go away faster is... Peroxide!!!! I seriously use it for E v e r y t h i n g! It makes them go away really fast.

Ammonia works really well too. I have this bug bite stick with ammonia that my husband swears by. It doesn't smell very good though. :)
