Get Rid of Itchy Mosquito Bites with These Home Remedies
Science & Tech| |
Summer not only brings out the nice weather, but also brings out the mosquitoes. There’s nothing worse than getting eaten alive when you’re trying to enjoy the summer sun. Once bitten, you’re tortured with itching and you end up with redness all over your skin. Although there are some over-the-counter remedies for mosquitoes bites, these are some homemade remedies that will ease your pain!
Hot Water or Hot Spoon
Do you know what really happens once you are bitten by a mosquito? It may gross you out, but mosquitoes inject proteins into your skin which causes an itchy allergic reaction. Although it doesn’t sound ideal, these allergic reactions cannot survive heat so it’s best to press a hot substance on the bite. Warming a metal spoon and pressing it against the bite can help destroy the protein and the itch along with it.
