In brief: Calamine, steroids

For mild cases calamine lotion for relief.
Cold compresses are helpful in relieving itching. For more severe or extensive cases a short course of oral steroids can calm down the reaction. Be sure to wash the clothes so you do not reexport yourself and identify the area to avoid recurrence.
