Insect: Possibilities include wasp or hornet sting or a spider bite. If there is swelling,spreading redness and warmth,antibiotics and possible antihistamine are indicated and,thus, a visit to your physician is advisable.

Zyrtec/Claritin: The itching is due to an allergic reaction to the infection and can last several days to weeks. A nonsedating antihistamine line zyrtec or Claritin (loratadine) is probably the best option.

Anti-itch remedies: Moisturize with a non-perfumed product-good examples are cetaphil, vaseline, lubriderm. Shower with lukewarm water. Avoid allergens from clothing/foods/cosmetics/laundry products. Topically, use 1% Hydrocortisone ointment and orally use 25 mg Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime. If symptoms do not resolve, then you may need prescription topical meds and your physician needs to rule out other underlying disorders.

Hydrocortisone OTC: The easiest way is to apply over-the counter 0.25% Hydrocortisone cream. And try to avoid the wasps, of course... Good luck.
A 26-year-old male asked:

I have a small hemeroid on the inner part of my anus. It does not itch or hurt. I noticed while wiping. Is there any suggestions to a fix?

No need.: Hemorroid won't need fixed until it's getting in the way of your bowel movements and/or hanging around down there and causing pain. Then see someone about fixing the hemorrhoid, but until then, ignore it.
