Like it or not, it’s the time of late walks, late nights and insects. In fact, it’s mostly insect weather, since they give you so many headaches with their bites. If you want your spring-summer stories not to be written with unpleasant memories of itching and stinging, take a look over these natural remedies to get rid of mosquito bites.
Everyone has vinegar in their house. When you have up to 10 mosquito bites, apply a little vinegar directly on them. Swelling and itch will disappear. If, however, you have a lot more, don’t pour the vinegar all over your body. Take a warm bath and pour 2-3 cups of vinegar in the tub and let your whole skin soak during a relaxing bath.
2. Aloe Vera
Another excellent remedy for mosquito bites is aloe vera. This not only will ease the itch and swelling, but will also take care of your skin. You can use a piece of freshly cut aloe vera leaf to extract its gel.
You are probably aware of the beneficial effects of toothpaste on pimples or wounds, but you must know that the same effects are for mosquito bite. Apply a little toothpaste (attention, with menthol!) and let it dry on the wound. You can keep it as much as you need. Be careful, however, how you remove it. Once dried, if you remove from one movement, you risk creating a bigger wound.
You should know that onions are great in getting rid of mosquito bites. Cut one onion slice and apply it on the wound for a few minutes. Wash the area after the juice has dried.
