Try Tiger Balm, it works especially well when the bites are fresh.

Try soaking the bite in salt water, it will help disinfect and heal it quicker.

Hi Maddy and welcome to BH.

You are going to find my suggestion really strange but put some Mylanta (the stuff you take for indigestion) on the bite. It really does work!!

This probably sounds silly but I find that rolling a underarm deodorant roll on onto mozzie bites stops them from itching for one or two hours!

I’ve heard vinegar on the bite is supposed to help too! Tried it once so far and it seemed to help. Eased the itching and it didn’t stay itchy anywhere near as long as usual. But that was only one test lol

MooGoo MSM cream is amazing, that is what we use here on all our bites, it really stops the itching. :)

My mate gets bad mossie bites that become like blisters and bleed if scratched. I put him onto paw paw ointment and he swears by it now saying it takes the itch away :) Worth a try maybe.

Okay all my friends used to laugh at me when I said this and now they all swear by it…HAIRSPRAY!!

Just dab some on when you get bitten and it won’t itch at all:)

Animine is the best I’ve ever used – got three kids and I’ve needed something that works well. It contains several good ingredients including calamine so it’s a good and effective blend that works for our family.

I can absolutely swear by a mosquito click. It’s a small device that delivers a tiny surge of electricity on to the bite and takes away the itching – although you do have to be “good” for about 10 minutes and not scratch but after that the itching is completely gone and I forget about the bites. Plus the redness and swelling goes down too.
What I love most is that it’s entirely invisible (no creams that dry white on your bite and look horrid), and completely portable, I have a few mosquito clicks and keep them in all my different bags, because they’re so tiny they even fit into my smallest evening bag (plus no risk of spilling!)

I have heard of animine softness, totally forgot about that one! Will tell my friend about that. There seems to be a few remedies here. Nda, i haven’t heard of hairspray, something different to try. I know when caught out if you have perfume (something with alcohol in it) you can pop that onto the bites and its meant to ease the itch. That mosquito click is a clever device, never heard of that till now! Myself, I still like my paw paw works enough for me :)

tea tree, lemon & even cinnamon leaf essential oils will help take the sting out of the bites … plus a bit of lemongrass will help keep them away as it’s a great repellent :)

hehe I know the feeling BQ!
Ummm I’ve got mine from chemist warehouse, I know camping stores also stock them. I think they’re somewhere between $15-$20 but the great thing is that they have like 25,000 charges in them so I can’t see them ever running out! I’ve got two and have had them both for over 2 years and they’re still going strong, so I reckon it’s great value!
