I recently have been bitten by a lot of mosquitoes. I have about 50+ on my legs. They are really itching, and it is preventing me from sleeping since I am in so much pain. Is there anything I can do to reduce the pain? Hydrocortisone 1% does not really help that much.
The most effective thing for multiple bites is oral antihistamines to reduce your itching reaction--benedryl, loratidine are possibilities.
It is unlikely that you have this many bites from mosquitoes (unless you know for a fact you were attacked by that many!) so the possibility of flea bites is more likely (or bedbugs). You can be evaluated in clinic if you are uncertain.
