Stopping insect bite itches

Leave a comment

A few weeks ago I had huge, extremely itchy mosquito bites.  A couple days ago I was putting fresh water in the bird bath and something bit me.   I didn’t even see what it was.  My arm swelled up, got all red and it itches like crazy.  I went on line to researcg itch remedies.  I used perscription strength hydrocortisone cream, benadryl, alcohol on the bites, witchhazel, ammonia and nothing worked except an ice pack.  The cold takes away the itch for several hours.   I sure wish I had know that when Bob and I got those awful red ant bites in FL a couple summers ago.

Thought I would pass this tip on to you.  I imagine everyone is different and may not work for you but it sure is easy and cheap to try.
