  • Soy sauce. At least I've been told it works.

  • if it's itchy, toothpaste does wonders. if it's a burning itch, aloe jelly (from a plant or a tube) will work. If it is red and swollen, put a warm compress on at least every 30 minutes.

  • grind up a cigarette, wet the tabacco and make a patty, and put the tabacco on the bite, it naturally pulls the poison back out of the bite and stops the itching, this works on wasp bites and mesquito bites.

  • Toothpaste.
    I've been using it on bug bites since I was a little girl and I swear by it.
    I had always used the plain, old-fashioned Crest.
