I'm v early in pregnancy and have horrible insect bites on my ankles and legs. It hurts to bend my foot! I don't think they're infected, as I do tend to react badly to bites and only got them yesterday. What can I do/use to help before I have to saw my own leg off?

Toothpaste. It will dry them out like it does with spots smile always works for me.
