Severe itching after a bed bug bite. Medication?

hello Dr, I have been suffering from itching since more than a month. Had gone for a vacation in India and I suspect bitten by a bed bug. No one else in our group is effected its only me. Tried with lot of doctors (GP & Dermatologists) but in vain. Can you please suggest a home remedy as I live in Bahrain and without doctors prescription will not be able to buy any medication .
