Hands down, what the best, fastest, longest-lasting remedy you've used to combat itchy mosquito bites?

I like peroxide, but have heard Vicks or toothpaste work really well.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Windex??? just kidding.

I've used this product that helps the itching, but I can't remember the name of it. I have used Preparation H and it helps them heal quicker. I have several as I'm typing this so I will try the PH when I get home this evening.

Mosquitoes love me. I recently heard that basil was a good repellent. I'm considering wearing some around my neck.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
Benadryl makes a topical gel that works really well. When I'm covered in bites, I use Eucerine anti itch lotion AND the Benadryl.

I would think the banana would attract all insects.

When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

Org. Apple Cider Vinegar (it's a cure all)
Baking Soda mixed with Witch Hazel or water to make a paste.
Milk mixed with water (I know baking soda and buttermilk paste is good for stings so it seems like milk and baking soda would work too)
Lavender Oil

Ice packs and Benadryl or Sudafed work well.

*I've heard the toothpaste thing too but read it was actually the mint alone in toothpaste that cooled and relieved so that gives a few more options.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
