See below: If really itchy, try over the counter antihistamine like benedryl. Ice applied to the bite can help, and some people like calamine lotion as well. Don't scratch....It will just get worse, last longer, and might get infected.

Remedies & tx: Store aloe vera gel in the refrigerator and apply to affected area. Rub a basil leaf on the bite. It repels mosquitoes & has anti-inflammatory properties effect. consider applying calamine lotion. Apply crushed ice or a cold pack. A 1 to 1 mix of water and baking soda is effective when applied to the lesions. You can take oral medications like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Chlorpheniramine for itching.

Cool mist: The best thing for a child suffered from a croupy cough is to calm him down, and place him in front of cool mist. Croup is caused by a virus the induces inflammation and swelling of the upper airway. Cool mist calms the cough. Believe it or not, taking your child out into the cool night air and sitting quietly will often relieve the discomfort.

Let explain?: Transient receptor potential (trp) channels play central roles in nociception under physiological and pathological conditions including inflammation and neuropathy. In this chapter, we will highlight the enormous progress in understanding the role of trp channels in nociception. We will mainly focus on two trp channels (trpv1 and trpa1) that have been particularly implicated in transducing signals.
