Bugs have had a love affair with me for years. The best thing that has worked for me I only discovered last year. It made sense to me. I use Off or Cutter or some other insect repellant AFTER the bite. The little stinkers are buried in your skin. I have found that if you continually dab insect repellant on them, they will die inside and then stop their burrowing/itch causing behavior. After that the bump will simply settle down and go away. I re-apply whenever the itch starts up again which is usually a few times a day, as opposed to every fifteen minutes with other cures. They always seem to 'go to sleep' for a while, then I dab them again. They won't live for long under constant attack from this poison.
