My DD has been bitten by a Mossie and the bites are very red and angry, poor little pet is tormented with them. Anyone any ideas for relief? Can 18 mo get an antihistamine to help with bad reaction to bites?

Tea tree oil will dry them up fast. Otherwise you can get an antiseptic cream from the chemist that also has a numbing factor to it. I use it for mine and it's great.

You can give zyrtec and I think claratine
Someone on here suggested vit c, which seemed to really help my ds who gets severe reactions to them

My boys get terrible reactions to mozzies. We got 4 way antiseptic from the chemist that has antiseptic and anesthetic so it numbs them. Worked very well.
