FEW THINGS are more annoying than the itching and scratching that accompanies a mosquito bite.
Check out four of RTN’s tried and tested home remedies to offer instant relief:
When you first notice the bite, try applying a small amount of vinegar directly to the bump. If you have many bites, try taking a very hot bath in a tub filled with water and 2 1/2 cups of vinegar.
2. A bar of dry soap
Rub a bar of dry soap directly on the bite – this will help provide temporary relief to the itching. Remember to wash it off thoroughly after the itch fades away.
3. Baking soda and water
Make a thick paste of baking soda and water, then apply it generously to the affected area. You should feel the swelling and itching subside shortly afterwards.
For quick relief from mosquito bites, try applying a small amount of all-natural peppermint or neem-based toothpaste – allow the paste to dry and leave for as long as desired.
