This was a total accident....I forgot to be careful around my mosquito bite!
So here's some DIY Mosquito Bite Soothing Recipes:
(the nasty source....get your proboscis away from me!)
HOME REMEDIES FOR MOSQUITO BITES:
(TRY ONE TRY ALL!)
WHAT I USED LAST NIGHT (when I was about to scratch my skin off!)
Mix a little paste of water and Baking Soda. Cover mosquito bite. Then I put a band-aid on top to make sure it didn't come off.
Not only did it stop the itching but it made the redness and swelling go away! No itching yet and it's been all night and I took a shower.
Other All Natural Mosquito Bite Remedies:
(it's at least worth a try!)
simply moisten the area and rub salt on bite area
-people say it stops itching immediately-
A freshly cut onion, quickly applied to a sting will prevent swelling and redness, and stop the pain. Onions have anti-microbial properties- even good for blemishes. But it's the same reason why I don't eat raw onions that have been sitting out or at salad bars, anymore. Onions absorb bacteria and odors. People even cut onions and leave them out in rooms where people are sick, to naturally absorb all the virus.
WITCH HAZEL & WATER-
you can try using Witch Hazel instead of water to make the paste with Baking Soda.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR-
Rub Apple Cider Vinegar directly onto bites.
TEA TREE OIL & ALOE VERA-
mix the two together and cover the bite area. The mixture will soothe bug bites, rashes and help prevent infection.
but it only works if you use the right toothpaste...it should be one of the "white" paste looking types (not a clear gel kind). It will help remove the inflammation and itch.
*put a band-aid on top to make sure you don't get toothpaste "crumbs" everywhere.
I'm sure there are many more...but here's just a few to help you not scratch your skin raw and get a little relief from those pesky mosquitos!
