Patient :How do I stop the itching from bed bug bite? what can I do so that they can stop biting me? It seems as though I'm the only one in the house getting bite, so who do they keep biting me?
What can I put on my body so that they won't bite me and also relive this itchy feeling as soon as possible. I can't sleep.
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
It is hard to understand why they are biting only you, as if there are bed bugs, all the family members are equally affected.
I will advise you to apply Calamine lotion which can reduce the itch as well as the intensity of the bites.
Additionally you can take Claritin ( Loratadine ) for relief.
Hope this was helpful,
