How do you make bug bites stop itching?
how do you make bug bites stop itching. some people say it's working if you put salt on it with water. others say benadryl and some says put ice on it. and soem says dont scratch it well its hard to avoid scratching it when its so itchy what a good way? and when i go to sleep its hard to sleep when its itchy what can i do

lidocaine, benedryl works because it's got an antihisthamine in it as well as a numbing agent, ice numbs it so you don't feel the itchiness and it reduces swelling, you can orally take tylenol or tylenol PM, or benedryl capsules to make your body calm down and resist itching and swelling so you can get a good sleep, you can take an anti anxiety medicine, lots of things. just go to that aisle of the drug store and you'll be in bug bite heaven.

Benedril, Benedril, Benedril.
You might feel drunk for a little bit, but it is worth it.
Ice, doesn't work.
If you have heard of something called, After-Bite, it works for me and is great!
If you absolutely have to itch, don't itch as hard, it only makes it itchier. =[
Hope I helped! Good Luck!
XO ANNIE

Alcohol works well! Just put in on a cotton ball and dab it on the bites. Ice kinda numbs it, so you dont really feel anything. Benadryl is a bit drastic, but it WILL work!! [that I can pretty much guarantee] Ummm...yeah you dont need to scratch it, but its really hard so just try your best!! Sometimes I even put a Bandaid over the bite so I wont scratch it. GOOD LUCK!!!

Alcohol works but I don't know why. Also, clear finger nail polish works. My grandma used to put this on our mosquito bites and they didn't itch anymore.

Sometimes baking soda and water, mixed into a paste and applied to the bites can be soothing. Also, there's a product called "after bite" which contains ammonia that can help.


Hannah
Honestly, if you dont know that the bug bite is there, it doesn't itch. What I always do is think about something else. Try watching TV, talking to a friend or family member, do anything you can to keep your mind off it. If you forget it's there, it wont itch. Sometimes I even put a bandage over it, so I don't see it. It works for me, I hope it works for you too!

The best product for the immediate relief of bug bites is pure Tamanu Oil. You probably have never heard of it as it is not well known outside the South Pacific countries. This oil comes from the nuts of the Tamanu Tree. It is a deep, luxurious oil with a strong nutty smell. On large areas it can have a drying effect so an even better product is Tamanu Butter - not so strong-smelling and has the added moisturizing components of virgin coconut oil and cocoa butter. Just apply it over the sensitive areas morning and night and you'll be in for a great night's sleep!

Lanacane or Itch-x work very, very well.

it may sound strange but buy yourself a bottle of household amonia and use a cotton ball to dab it on your bites it will sting for a second but the itch will go away . it basically is the same thing that put in those expensive bug bite preps they sell in drugstores


Maryfrances
Ammonia! Put it on with a cotton ball. Keep applying it every time it itches. If you've already scratched and the skin is broken, it will sting; also, the fresher the bite, the more effective the ammonia. It stinks, but when we had a flea infestation, it was the only way I could get my ankles to stop itching long enough to get to sleep!

I understand that, on one of Thor Hyderdahl's adventures, a Portuguese Man-O-War stung one of his crewmenbers. The man became very sick and was not recovering, so the crew all peed in a bucket and they bathed his stings with the pee (lots of ammonia in pee), and he recovered. Kinda gross, but nice to know if you're in trouble from a bite/sting and you're far from civilization.

try apple cider vinegar mixed with equal part water, or white vinegar straight
