I drank some bendadryl pills with water and it was cured in 2 or 3 days I think and then you will still have it but will not ich at all then I think you need to use cream and rub it then it might dissappear.

Australian Bush Remedy - Bracken Fern

I don't know if you have Bracken Ferns in the US, but in Australia, when I was a little kid, I'd always manage to get bitten by Bull-ants or Jack Jumpers which are bloody painful and sting like hell. My parents would always use Bracken Ferns to instantly get rid or the pain and itch. Pull out a green Bracken Fern...which grow everywhere like weeds in the Australian bush, snap the root of the fern until the sticky white milky stuff comes out and rub it on the bite. It will stop the sting or itch instantly. This also works on Mozzie bites. No need to carry any potions or lotions with you, its provided free from natures larder.

Fresh garlic

Cut a piece of fresh garlic rub the cut end on the bite. It will provide almost instant relief from the itch and the swelling will diminish also. People who eat fresh garlic just about never get bit by mosquitos, your body becomes a natural repellant.

All you do is put scotch tape on the bite. Easy and simple. You can even take it off after a few min. Works wonders for me and hopefully for you and instant itch relieve. Its good, easy to put on, can be mixed with other remedies, helps prevent you from scratching, and almost everyone has tape.
