x marks the spot

If you are in bed a sleep and you have an urge to scratch your mosquito bite and have no energy to get up and make a remedy all you have to do is simply push your nail really hard into the mosquito bite and make an "x" shape this will stop the itch for awhile.

Itch be gone

All you need to do for this remedy is mix cooling cream and lotion together. After, you apply it to the mosquito bite. After about a minute the itch should go away for about an hour.

Very Hot Compresses

This works for bites that have become red and swollen and very itchy (unlike many of the other remedies that only help if used immediately upon being bitten--I never know I've been bitten til it's too late, so those aren't helpful for me).

Apply a wadded cloth or paper towel that has been drenched in very hot water to the bite, remove, rewet and replace every ten seconds or so to keep it very hot, for a total of about 45 seconds. It must be truly painfully hot--I use the hottest water that comes from my tap. For the first 30 seconds or so, this will increase the itch to a maddening level, then suddenly, it will disappear, usually for several hours, certainly long enough to allow you to fall asleep, which is always my problem when I'm bitten up.

I'm told the heat breaks down the histamines that cause the itch, it takes a while for them to build up again. It's not a permanent remedy, but when you are mad with itching, you will thank me!

That dryer Sheet . .Use it !!

When you want a less expensive alternative . .
*** get a bounce dryer sheet *** rub it over your exposed skin areas well, you may see some light poweder dust in your cloths, specially in dark colors . . but it does not stain.

Use Anti-Perspirant to stop mosquito bite itching

I use any ole' anti-perspirant on a mosquito bite immediately after I get bit and it stops the itching quicker than over-the-counter hydrocortisone "anti-itch" creams. Also, as long as I use hydrocortisone cream and/or an anti-perspirant within 15 to 30 minutes after a bite, it will be completely gone in a few hours.

As soon as you get bit by a mosquito, apply Benadryl cream (or store brand) to the spot, & within 10 minutes you'd never know you got bit! I've been doing this for years & it works great!!
