We had a great mini-vacation to the mountains. Oh, and I brought back some souvenirs – 59 mosquito bites. And no – this isn’t an exageration – I literally counted all of them because I was going crazy. Mosquitoes LOVE me. I’ve read that they are attracted to people with a certain pH level and I, apparently, have it. They never touch my Hubby and rarely bother my daughter but they LUVRE me.
For the last day or so I was using Cortaid’s spray which was nice because you don’t have to touch them at all which makes them itch worse. About noon today I thought I would go out of my mind for wanting to scratch. Hubby reminded me I should take some Benadryl (and I could have KICKED myself for not thinking of it sooner!) and that gave me a little more relief. I used this stick called “After Bite” which has amonia in it which feels good because it’s so cold but that relief didn’t last long. After that I slathered myself in calamine lotion. Yes – I have almost 60 pink spots on my arms and legs BUT I finally have some relief!!!
I’ll post tomorrow about the trip and hopefully include some pics.
