Itchy Bug Bite

More than likely I got it yesterday when we were having fun outside, but I have a bug bite on my foot. Probably from a mosquito. It itches like crazy. I've already put on "After Bite" and that didn't seem to do anything.

There has to be some homemade remedy to stop this itching...right?

  • baking soda and water - mix it like a paste and apply :)

  • I use calydryl lotion - it's OTC, not too expensive and isn't pink. That stuff works wonderfully.

  • Do you have a facial mask around the house? Put some of the mask on it. The mask will pull the toxins out, and cut back on the itching.
