Customer Question

15 year old type 1 diabetic has at least 60 or more mosquito bites. Benadryl cream not working well. Is there anything else we can use to help with itching? She is covered arms, back, legs and feet with mosquito bites. Suggestions?

Over the counter claritin is long acting and safer long term than benadry.

If this does not help, to the ER, or if you sense infection.

Careful blood sugar monitoring.
