What is the best medicine or treatment for insect bites?
We went hiking and after a while i had these red bumps which are very itchy and it spread in my arms and upper thighs reaching to the lower legs. Now, I its somehow healed but the itchiness is still there and its dark in color, I am afraid that it will leave a bad scar! Help please.
Up to now I didnt know what kind of insect bit me and the itchiness is driving me crazy.
