Mosquito season is officially here, so we’ve got some tips to deal with the itchy bites:
1. Take a Benadryl. At the core, you’re dealing with an allergic reaction. So it can help with the itching.
2. Put toothpaste on them. Toothpaste can help with the itching and it’s a good solution if you’re out camping and can’t get to a store.
3. Put aloe on it. It helps with the itching and swelling, and also helps them heal. Apparently aloe from the actual plant works better than the sunburn stuff.
4. Treat them with salt water. Pour a little bit of water on the bite, just to get it wet. Then rub some salt on there. It might sting at first, but it should help with the itching
I still prefer to make an “X” on the bite with my fingernail to push out the poison!
