    Best thing for the itching is an antihistamine and/or some antihistamine cream. Not sure about infection but keeping it clean is likely to be important.

    Hey @_Tech_Addict_Girl

    I've attached this link:

    There are some repellents you can put on your skin to stop them biting you in the first place as well.

    It's much easier to say "My tooth is aching" 
    than to say "My heart is broken"

    Hi @_Tech_Addict_Girl
    I also find that ice, or anything cold from the freezer like peas, also helps with bites too. If I remember it tries to bring the poison to the surface. It also works good if you've been scratching it quite a bit too.

    Hope this helps
