antihistamine cream works wonders for the itching – you can get it in tesco .
toothpaste works in a pinch if you havent any of the above
above all resist scratching.

Top tip for prevention cover your clothes in deet not your skin – ive yet to find a non deet based one thats effective on swarms of mozzies(skin so soft and smidge/citronella based etc DO NOT WORK AT ALL with mosquitos that i can assure you, dont use scented soap – wash often and dont use scented deoderant
Incognito Mosquito (or Skin so Soft works for me) and sleep under a mosquito net – most people that I see suffering from loads of bites are the ones that don’t observe a few simple precautions.
I’m not saying that this is you, of course.
