When your kids have itchy insect bites, give them little bags made from pieces of pantyhose stuffed with handfuls of dry oatmeal. These soothing "scratchy bags" relieve the itch without the risk of broken skin or infection. They are great for adults too. My son has severe psoriasis and i give these to him to help stop the scratching.

Is the oatmeal bag applied wet or is it used dry simply as a replacement for finger nails?
Dabbing on vinegar (white seems to be the best, but others work too) helps relieve itching and the burn from a sting. Sometimes just one application does the trick. Always worked for my kids and me. Dilute it for sunburn and spray it on. It balances the pH of your skin.
