When i get bit by mosquitos-typically I itch them-drives me insane and then they get infected and sometimes it takes months to heal-the lesions get much bigger than the initial bite. If a cat scratches me-again I will itch it and the scratch gets bigger and more infected. I can't seem to control the itching and it drives me nuts. The sores look like they want to heal but sometimes takes months to do just that. any ideas on how to make them heal faster? besides, some scratching-any pointers?
