Don’t Scratch Your Insect Bites
Mosquito bites can itch and look unsightly for weeks after they become red and inflamed. If you’re stuck with a sting, we recommend trying Aveeno Hydrocortisone 1% Anti-Itch Cream ($6 at drugstore.com) twice daily until itching resolves. Caution: resist the temptation to scratch, it will only make your bites worse. To fade any residual marks, try Avene Ciclafate Restorative Cream ($23 at Shoppers Drug Mart) twice a day and concealer as needed.
