    Any of the natural remedies and essential oils such as eucalyptus and even calendula even is good. You have got to be careful of anything abrasive, especially with children. You can get a range of calendula creams that are quite good.
    It just depends on the bite itself. With tropical bites you have got to be careful, creams can feed an infection. So you have got to have an astringent in there as well, even eucalyptus down or lemon balm can work.
