In brief: What to do:
Store aloe vera gel in refrigerator ; apply to affected area.
Rub basil leaf on bite. It repels mosquitoes ; has anti-inflammatory properties. You can mix 2 parts baking soda w 1 part water. Stir into paste ; place it over the mosquito bite. Can use calamine lotion. If you have problems w generalized welts, swelling of tongue, lips, airway - you should get urgent medical care.

In brief: Apply some ice first
Then try some topical Hydrocortisone and/or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) cream. Most of all, try not to scratch!
