My kid tried to count the number of insect bites I received on our hike on Sunday.

He lost count at 215.

The itching is terrible.


I've now tried hydrocortisone, benzocaine, lidocaine, benadryl cream, calamine lotion, an oatmeal bath, and all of the above combined in different combinations.

The only real solution for my 215+ insect bites is numbing with ice. I expect to get no sleep tonight.
