Would vitamin e oil help heal the bites?(3 posts)
It has been at least two weeks now since I woke up with the bites, and they are still as prominent as when I first got bit. Would vitamin e oil help heal them? They don't really itch, but I feel like a leper. :/
Has anyone tried anything that worked for them?
There are many topical materials that people have tried with reported success however, folks react as individuals so, your mileage may vary.
Our friend DC has reported that Neosporin works. Others have commented on various OTC type products as well. Anything known to cure skin ailments may help but if you're not seeing the results you expect perhaps you're better off seeing your MD.

Vit e oil tends to work best for bruises.
As Paul has mentioned a good OTC ointment for wound healing is a stable recommendation although more recently I have found the best relief from after sun burn treatments with lots of Aloe Vera and lindocaine.
However as with all medical issues the advice is see you doctor or pharmacists for their professional opinion.
