Sometimes applying an ice cube to the bite will numb it enough so that you can't feel it thru the initial itching period....

Hi. You don't sound at all crazy to me. You actually help to reaffirm my own sanity a little. Ever since shortly after I started on the prednisone, nothing heals properly on me. Whether it be a bug bite, a small burn from the stove (I'm not so handy in the kitchen), or a small cut from the razor; I am scarred in many places. I have wondered many times what I might look like after several years of this. Some small places on my legs from around last fall have finally gone away, but it must take a long time. Take care.
Always looking for the silver lining, Sharen
