How to Get Rid Of Mosquito Bites

The skin is always exposed. Some have delicate sensitive skin where they get blemishes often out of nowhere, or pimples. And then of course, there’s acne. All of these cause the person to scratch, or create the urge to scratch. One would truly make matters worse for themselves if they were to do such thing. They do go away on their own. What’s said so far applies to mosquito bites, of course. A majority of us, if not all, have dealt with at least one mosquito bite in our time. A mosquito bite normally presents itself with a lump. Surrounding the lump is a field of redness. Fortunately, there are ways that you can speed up the process of getting rid of mosquito bites.
Baking Soda
Place about a few teaspoons of baking soda and add two teaspoons of warm water. Mix until there’s no sign of solid pieces of the baking soda. Apply the baking soda paste to the mosquito bite(s). Repeat application as needed during the day. Don’t cover the area so that the paste can dry.
mosquito bite removalCalamine Lotion
Remember the time when you had chickenpox and your mother applied calamine lotion all over your body? Well, it’s time to take out the calamine lotion again! It’s generally an anti-itching agent and is safe to use. Be sure to use the product in accordance to the directions and warning that are printed on the label of the packaging and/or product itself.
Ice
An ice pack should spark memories of you falling and bruising yourself. Mosquito bites swell up too, and ice, of course, helps reduce swelling. Ice may also reduce redness that accompanies the bite. Apply an ice pack (wrap in a washcloth first to avoid frostbite), or a bag of ice directly on the bite(s). Leave for about 15-20 minutes. Reapply periodically throughout the day as necessary.
Tea tree oil is also at your disposal. Also known as “melaleuca oil,” it can help with severe skin conditions such as herpes. You also have antihistamines. And, if you’re patient and can resist the urge to touch and/or scratch the mosquito bite(s), then you can simply wait it out til’ they’re gone. They do go away by themselves in time, about 1-2 weeks).
