Summers are here already here. Your blog was a great read. I am taking True Elements Multigrain Oatmeal as it helps in improving digestion.
I'd try icing the bites first, and maybe applying a thin paste of baking soda with a little water. In my experience, an oatmeal bath works well for calming the itch from any cause. It's safe and soothing, so give it a try!
I'm not sure what you mean by "drained." If you mean "leftover from breakfast" by all means, put it into a clean, thin cotton sock or the leg part of a clean nylon stocking, tie it off to make a bag, wet well with warm water, and rub it gently over the rash area for a minute or two. I'd make a small, fresh bag each day you want to use oatmeal to soothe your baby's rash.

Thanks for the info, and a special THANK YOU from MOTHER NATURE. It is May 14, 2015, and last night I was having problems with my Blood pressure, plus a head ache. I had no more of my blood pressure med's left. So I was at the store looking for something to eat. Not much money to spend, and payday was two day's away. This is why I was out of my med's. Some thing told me to buy some no bake oatmeal cookies. After just eating a few, and a few hour's later, I noticed the deference. The next day my blood pressure was better, oh by the way my headache was gone, a few hour's after eating them too. MOTHER NATURE sure know's how to take care of us don't she.

This was a live saver. Had a severe allergic reaction to handling Myorporum Laetum cuttings yesterday. Full body rash isn't too bad but my knees to ankles were unbearable. Mixed it up in a 5gal bucket and I am amazed how much better my legs feel. That bucket isn't going too far until the symptoms subside. Also discovered that running a fan towards my legs helps.
Oatmeal really does help with itchy skin. I have been using it for years on my son's eczema and dry skin. I used to give him oatmeal baths but now that he's older he just uses Aveeno lotion.
