Wet dressings: Arthropod bites respond to open wet dressings 10 minutes three times daily followed by Hydrocortisone 1% cream . Best to see your md for a stronger cortisone cream.

Cortisone cream: If they itch, try cortisone cream. If they hurt or do not itch, time will heal it. If it oozes pus, antibiotic cream or an antibiotic may be needed. Be sure to check your suitcases or bag for bedbugs.
