What helps with mosquito bites? First aid for insect bites.

(07/12/2010) It is summer and therefore also high season for mosquitoes and mosquito bites. Mosquito bites can hardly be prevented, but what do you do if you have been stung once and the itching is unbearable.

After a mosquito bite, the skin itches and swells slightly. An old and simple home remedy helps to alleviate the swelling and, above all, the itching: It is best to cool the affected area with a cold cloth. The best thing to do is to use a damp, cold cloth that is soaked with cold water again and again until the itching subsides. However, ice cubes are unsuitable because they can freeze the skin. Conventionally, cooling ointments from the pharmacy can also be used. However, such agents are actually superfluous, since cooling with a damp cloth works best. In addition, possible side effects and skin scratches from chemical ointments are not excluded. A variety of homeopathic naturopathic remedies also help to relieve the symptoms. These include "Staphisagria C 200" or "Staphisagria D 3 Dil". Just ask a pharmacist or a naturopath you trust.

Prevention still works best. In order to avoid mosquito bites, it is advisable to wear long, breathable trousers and long-sleeved T-shirts and stockings in the evening. So-called insect screens can be attached to the windows so that the mosquitoes don't even get into the apartment. Natural repellents like "Citronella" in candles can also keep mosquitoes away. (sb)
