Everyone knows how unpleasant mosquito bites are. If you are tired of scratching and suffering, and all tried means do not help, we will help you out!
Here are the most effective tools from improvised materials:
1. Soap and water
Don’t scratch the bite! Wash it off with cool soapy water first. Scratching will only aggravate the irritation and may lead to infection.
2. Ice compress
It is no coincidence that ice is advised to be applied to inflamed places: it helps. Ice slows down the allergic histamine reaction and numbs the nerve endings that transmit itching. Histamines are released in reaction to the bite, which causes itching, redness, and swelling. An ice pack will help relieve this reaction.
3. Calamine lotion
Calamine is a mixture of zinc oxide and iron oxide that cools the skin and relieves itching. Calamine lotion is sold in pharmacies.
Yes, yes, oatmeal works as a bite remedy! Apply oatmeal directly to the bite to relieve itching and inflammation. And if you’ve been bitten from head to toe, try taking an oatmeal bath.
If you need to quickly relieve the itch, run to the kitchen. Honey is a natural remedy that promotes wound healing and is great for mosquito bites.
