Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

I understand your concern. Some advice that I can give you are:     

1) Don’t scratch.
2) Wash the area with soap and water.
3) Put an ice pack on the bite.
4) Take an over-the-counter antihistamine.
5) Apply calamine lotion or anti-itch cream.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.

Thank you for the query.
