  • Topical Benadryl (or generic equivalent).

    Also bathing the area with soap and water works well. Let the soap suds sit there a while to dry out the area. (Do this before applying anything like Benadryl.) And absolutely do not scratch it AT ALL. :)

  • A heated spoon placed over the bite area with pressure will reduce the swelling. The combination of heat and pressure will effectively kill the proteins that cause the itching.

  • Make a paste of baking soda and water that's damp but not drippy. Put it on the bite until it dries and it will draw the venom out. Do it twice if necessary and then clean it and put anti-itch cream on it.
