When the itch of a mosquito bite becomes too much to bear, consider allowing Alka-Seltzer to come to the rescue. Drop two tablets into a ½ glass of water. Dip a cotton ball into the glass and apply the solution to your bite. Keep in mind that if you are allergic to aspirin, you should avoid this home remedy.
There are plenty of items in your bathroom cabinet that can ease the discomfort of a mosquito bite, including calamine lotion, Benadryl Cream, Orajel, Anbesol, Caladryl, Vicks VapoRub, Preparation H, Gold Bond Medicated Cream (or powder), and Mylanta.
Instead of scratching your bites, concentrate on making a paste to treat your symptoms. Baking soda, meat tenderizer, salt, Epsom salts, Tums tablets, and aspirin are the most common ingredients used to mix with water in order to create a healing paste.
It's pretty hard to resist scratching a mosquito bite. However, the temporary relief is not worth the threat of infection. You can lessen your chances of infection by cutting a lemon in half and rubbing the soft, pulpy side of the slice against your itchy skin.
Treat itchy skin by dissolving one teaspoon of baking soda in one glass of water. Dip a cloth into the mixture and place on your bite for 15 to 20 minutes. You can also create a paste out of witch hazel and baking soda that is also left on a bite for about 15 minutes.
