Have 100's of mosquito bites everywhere on body. How long will it take for them to stop itching and go away?

Have 100's of mosquito bites everywhere on body. How long will it take for them to stop itching and go away?

Mosquito Bites: Baking soda mixed with a little water then placed on the bite area is a cheap and effective way to help reduce the itching. There is a product call Ben's Afterbite that makes it easy to apply. You could also use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Hydrocortisone cream but given the bites are extensive, I would hesitate to place this amount cream all over your body. It can sometimes take days for the itching to stop. ...Read more

I have 2 awful fever blisters on my lower lip, they take forever to go away. Is there any way I can make them heal faster?

I have 2 awful fever blisters on my lower lip, they take forever to go away. Is there any way I can make them heal faster?

Yes: 1) See your doctor and get an anti-viral medication. You can shed virus even after the sores dry. Or... 2) There is an OTC creme called Abreva. In my experience Abreva works on some patients and not on others. These sores are caused by Herpes Type I virus. This is not genital herpes. No kissing, wash hands frequently and keep fingers away from eyes. Do not transfer virus to eyes or other people ...Read more

Is it better to pop fever blisters on my lip or to let them ride out their course. they are just spreading and I would like the to go away.

Is it better to pop fever blisters on my lip or to let them ride out their course. they are just spreading and I would like the to go away.

Not to pop: assuming it is indeed herpes simplex fever blister. 1) it is small, near surface, viral, short duration 2) virus is not very likely to spread or cause other sites of infection BUT. getting realy fresh exudate and spreading it in open wound or eye is one way to cause the worst outcome and if let alone the virus dies out by the time the blister pops on its own (don't get it in your eye in any case). ...Read more
