7. Rubbing Alcohol

Rubbing alcohol is a common household antiseptic that can be used to relieve irritation caused by mosquito bites and reduce the chance of developing an infection.

Put a small amount of alcohol on a cotton ball and rub it onto the affected skin area. Initially it may sting a little, but you will soon feel relief from the itching and swelling. If you do not have rubbing alcohol, you can use mouthwash that contains a high amount of alcohol or vodka.


8. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil has good antiseptic properties that can help treat bacteria-infected wounds like acne and mosquito bites. It also will help reduce swelling and itchiness.

Simply use a cotton ball to apply some tea tree oil to the affected area. If you have sensitive skin, do not use tea tree oil as it can cause skin irritation. You can try other essential oils like lavender or cedar oil.

  1. Toothpaste worked amazingly well for me. I read this post and went to try some of them. Mosquitos are in abundance here because it is so hot and humid, so mosquito bites are a constant annoyance. The toothpaste not only blocked the itchiness, it gave the bites a cooling feeling. Now I don’t feel like constantly having to scratch them. Thanks a lot for this post~ <3

  2. Gold Coast Australia. We’ve had a lot of rain and the mozzies are everywhere. Just trying the lemon on my little grandson but will definitely buy an aloe Vera plant tomorrow. Thanks

  3. Don’t use lemon if you have already scratched, yeah learned the hard way. Although it has taken the itching away and replaced it with stinging hahaha
