  • go outside and find some plantain..its a weed that grows everywhere..then wash it off, chew it up and spit the pieces out onto the mosquito bite and rub the plantain on is a natural antibiotic/anti itch and it works for me! I know it sounds silly! If you need a picture of what it looks like pm me

  • Camphophenique, gosh I hope I spelled that right. It does work though, just dab it with a q tip. I also have used Mentholatum and it works as well.
