Corlee's Quick Fix

Mosquito bites – after being assaulted over the weekend…

Apply ice directly to the bite

Dab with a small bit of general household ammonia

Rub apple cider vinegar

Peppermint toothpaste works the best

Roll on deoderant

spritzer of vinegar to spray on them

Tiger Balm. Rub a little on a mosquito bite and the itchiness is replaced by a pleasant warm feeling.

Goldbond. Put some of that on, don't scratch, and they'll be almost gone the next day. the Goldbond feels really nice because the menthol causes it to tingle on your skin

Baking soda paste, try not to touch it til it dries

Vitamin B1 creates an odor on our skin that bugs don't like

Tea tree oil mixed at equal parts with of jojoba oil, then that mixture dispersed at 10% to 90% aloe

Try a hand held hair dryer. Aim the hot air at the bites till it's too hot to stand then don't scratch. It will itch for a few seconds then stop. I don't know why this works but it seems to work for anything that itches


Any good tips? Anything you've tried to soothe the bites that worked well for you? Please share!!
