    hey does anyone know anything (besides tea-tree oil) that will get rid of these annoying pests bites!! *sniffles* the mozzies (mosquitos) have been nipping me all week! and its bloody winter!! *moan*! apparently its because i've been eating so many banana's lately and they're attracted to that. how so confuses me greatly....

    and i itch!! i got bitten 10 times in less then 10 mins yesterday!!!! and these ones STING BENEATH the surface!!!!!!!!!

    *is slowly being driven insane*

    i have these horrid lil pimple looking things on my arms, hands and jawline and then a HUGE aching red patch around it! *cries*

    Calamine lotion. You can also get a product that's made specifically for bug bites.

    If your looking for something at home you can use, ice it. It'll reduce the swelling and numb the area.

    Gosh, I always thought bananas kept the bugs away. Bugger.

    Lavender oil helps alot with the itching.

    Apart from that, sorry I can't help further, darl. [​IMG]
  4. My family uses this cooling gel. You put on your bite and it makes cool and stopps it from itching. Don't scratch! It'll make it even worse.

    this will sound strange i know, but lick the end of your finger and put some saliva (not a goobey amount [​IMG]) and dab it on the mozzie spots and you'll find the itch goes away [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I never get mozzie bites, i dont think they like my blood... [​IMG] awww *thinks about the goodness of this fact....* [​IMG] yay! but the rest of my family gets them all the time and they get stingoes but that only works for a while...saliva is the way to go. [​IMG]
