This weekend, I went on a delightful camping trip in the Olympic National Forest. And while I came back with plenty of great memories (and a few story ideas), I also came back with about a million mosquito bites. Because, even with bug spray and light, protective clothing, I’m just one of those people that get really bitten. So, over the years, I’ve found a few pretty great ways to get relief from bug bites–naturally.
Some antihistamine creams and other topical treatments can contain harmful chemicals, or just be rough on the skin, making it more prone to scarring. These treatments help take the stinging itch away, while also cooling skin and helping it heal. Try one or two and see which one you like best.
