Tipp des Tages : 02 July

Stop the itching caused by mosquito bites

No chance! Despite all the protections, you were bitten by mosquitoes.
These bites itch a lot, but do not scratch otherwise you could be infected by bacteria which live under your nails for example.
When it's itching, soak a clean bandage in baking soda, wring lightly and apply it on bites. You should keep it for 15 to 20 minutes.
You can also apply ice, directly on the bite or over the bandage .
Then you can apply a 1-percent hydrocortisone cream, if it is not contraindicated.
If the inflammation is severe, do not hesitate to consult your doctor.
