Itchy, itchy, itchy!

Good Morning fellow MyLotters! Phew! Last night I had trouble sleeping because of all the mosquito bites all over my legs. It's horrible! I am sure I disturbed my boyfriend while I was using my feet to scratch my legs off and on all through the night. Worst part is I don't have any kind of itch cream to relieve the itching. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make mosquito bites stop itching without itch cream? Maybe a home remedy?

I would say some kind of bath but really I would not know. My nose started itching all over again as I sit here. I wish I knew why.

I heard when your nose is itching someone is talking about you!

You can put a pad with vinegar during a few minutes, and for a completely free remedy you can use the juice coming from the leaves of any plantain/fleawort : they grow everywhere, near the roads, on abandoned fields and even on sidewalks.

I wish I had some vinegar right now! Not sure about the leaves, I'd be scared I pick up some poison ivy! I can't tell the difference! But those are interesting remedies, thank you!

Oh that not good, they say bay leaf, get a fresh bay leaf and rub it against your skin and it will stop mosquito eating you.

Start from the other direction and prevent these bites. Wear light colored clothing, standing water around your area is a breeding ground. Here is a link that will help:
Many herbs and natural agents have anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat any insect bites.

Thanks! I've been spending a lot of time by the lake, so I'm sure that's where I got all my bites from.

@Angelee_27 You need to spray yourself from time to time so they aren't attracted.

@celticeagle Yeah, I'll have to get some repellent.

I have heard of using a baking soda paste. Maybe you could try some anti-histamine. If you want to buy a prepared cream, I would ask the pharmacist.
