Hi Fiona

If there aren't too many spots a topical cream such as Dilucort or Anthisan may help, whilst a tablet such as Allergex or Deselex may help in case of a large number of bites.

It's also important to eliminate the source of the bites.

If no improvement is seen with the products mentioned above, you should consult a medical practitioner.
