Do you have any cortisone cream? It’s an otc cream that treats itchiness from bug bites etc.

Yea I usually use Savlon and Vaseline, it helps with the itchiness.

OMG the itchiness!! Yes I suffer from that a lot, I find it does help to take dressings off and let the air get to wounds. It's nice to have a shower or bath and clean the wounds and let them air dry, itchiness is an ongoing problem though and I understand what you're saying. I think when they get to the dried scab stage they itch a lot. x
