Try baking soda on your bites - mix with a bit of water and make in to a paste

would have to buy some.... i don't keep it in the house.. will try the antihistamine first and see how that goes.
If you have nothing in the house/flat at all, vinegar is good for instant relief. Just a dab on your finger then the spot.

stings a bit i would
fleas from the carpet ( jump see but not far)
or harvesters ( grass fleas around this time of year - near the harvest)
or horse flies - ( not usually ankles)

will get some goods from Boots, i have had this problem before when travelling but not so much in the UK.

they are not just on my feet, but on my inner thigh too. most unsightly.
Twenty minutes in the sun every day should be enough to make vitamin D at this time of year (unless you cover yourself in sun block)
Emmie, a good burst of sun last year isn't going to see you through this year.

My friend / colleague the Immunologist said Vit D should be taken lifelong and should NEVER be stopped.

I'm just in Wetherspoons having breakfast with half a Guiness :-) xx
Some people must not take Vit D supplements, though - such as those taking some anti-seizure drugs. It's always worth checking with your GP before taking any OTC vitamins or medicines.
i get vit d on prescription
Have recommended this before, really good for summer bites, stings etc: ANTHISAN

Can be bought over the counter at most pharmacies - I used some just this morning!
Vinegar stops itching. Mozzie here is long legged & quiet (no usual whinny sound).
I have no time for mozzies ,even the a/b variant.
Antihistamine cream and/or tablets are readily available at any chemist, Superdrug etc etc but the latter at least are far cheaper in Lidl - worth keeping a packet in the house. I'm not convinced that the Vit D bit is very relevant.
I also get VitD on prescription.
Emmie, Avon dry oil spray , they hate it
