My poor little squirrel has inherited my severe reaction to bug bites. She got bit on the eyelid (of all places!!) on Monday and it is really swollen and itchy. I got bit on the earlobe over the weekend and it swelled to cartoon proportions off and on for a couple of days and itched like crazy. This morning her eyelid looks really bad. I gave her a Benadryl and some Acetaminophen to see if that helps. Does anyone know a good home remedy for the itching and swelling of bug bites besides applying ice?
