    I woke up as I felt something at my arm. I've got about 10 big bites all over my arm. They r really sore & itchy. What can I put on them to help?

    Antihistamine cream is good for bites. Go to the chemist and show them. Also, if any of the bites become infected they'll give you the correct cream

    Calamine lotion is quite good too as it will neutralise acids and alkalis, so depending what's bitten you it would probably work on both :) xxx

    antihistamine (sp) works on bites - you need to calm the itching down :D x

    I use E45 hydrocortisone cream. My lifes a misery at this time of year, I daredn't go in the garden! I've tried everything going and nothing works to deter them. And how come they always go for your bra and knicker lines?

    We have a huge problem with midges, in Scotland they wear boots and have the teeth of pyrana. One day one of our dogs came in with massive lumps all over his body due to bites, his fur was stood on end. We had to take him to the vet to get a shot. :eek:
