The deet washed off in 2 mins of riding,in last nights monsoon.And have a good few insect nibbles on my legs,Any suggestions for relief?.have used after bite cream(anti-histo),and am using one of those pizo bitezappers,which are usually good for mosie bites,but seem to have no affect on our nasty bitey insects.
a teeny dab of ibuprofen gel will take the itching and inflamation away, as long as the skin's not broken
I have them all over my legs at the moment and they itch like hell. I seem to get caught out at least once every year. I'll never learn. Best advice I can give is under no circumstances scratch them! It will make them itch worse and last longer. I've had them so bad that I have been unable to sleep in the past. We get man killer swarms of flies here in wales. A guy told me on a recent camping trip that they are attracted to deoderant if thats any help
Savlon, and don't scratch.
Pesky insects I can deal with. I got bitten by one of my patients during a restraint on weds! As did a colleague of mine.
