    Can anyone recommend a product that prevents scarring from bites? Thanks.

    Not scratching, as hard as it is,seems to be the best avenue. If the bites are bothersome, I use an anti-histamine pill; that gets me past the worst of the itch. Otherwise, I really on sudocreme, it really seems to accelerate the healing process for me. hope that helps.

    In most cases the scaring is indeed caused by the scratching and secondary infections from under the nails.

    As with all medical matters professional advice should be sought from a pharmacist or doctor but you should be looking for things that moisturise, wound heal and that may also have a secondary effect of being antihistamine and antibiotic.

    To prevent scratching or bites on the hands while sleeping you can always use cotton glove liners.

    Hope that helps.

    As hard as it can be not to scratch, once you do, the itching isn't as bad, which makes it easier.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Brooklyn_bites: I just recommended this to another forum member - try cocoa butter, shea butter, and/or bio oil. Hydrocortisone cream helps a lot with the itching also.
