bug bites on my face :(

I have five bug bites on my face...one on my cheek, two on my right temple, one on my left temple and one on my forehead.

HELP!!! They itch so bad but I'm not touching them. How can I get rid of them quick??? They're so annoying! I put some anti-itch cream on it but it didn't do anything. I just want them gone!

I would try a different anti-itch cream if that one's not working for you...also ice will help with redness & bring down any swelling

Maybe try taking an anti-inflammatory, like ibuprofen. That might help get rid of some of the redness. If you have benadryl or any other type of anti-histamine with you, that would probably help a bit too.

Have you tried a cortisone cream?

I spent a weekend at my friend's summer cottage and there were at least gazillion mosquitos there.

I'm covered with big, red itchy bumps but as mentioned above, anti-histamine and cortisone cream are doing the trick for me

Don't scratch them. Take some benedryl if you can. Anti-itch cream and ice doesn't work for me either.

I also take anti-histamines and use cortisone cream for bug bites. Also, try swiping a bit of deodorant onto the bite - it takes away the itch (though I realize you may not want to put deodorant on your face).
