How to Make Mosquito Bites Stop Itching
The saliva that a mosquito leaves behind on your skin acts as an anti-coagulant. That means that while the mosquito is feeding on your blood, you won’t feel a thing. Afterwards though, when the mosquito is long gone, it gets itchy. Scratching on your skin can worsen things, as it can create open wounds and leave scars. So before you start laying a hand on the bite, here is a quick treatment on how to make mosquito bites stop itching using household items. What you will need: an aspirin tablet, clean water, a spoon, a clean paper napkin, and a small bowl. As a precaution, make sure that you are not allergic to aspirin. Also, if you have scratched the inflamed area and caused it to scar, this may not be the right remedy on how to make mosquito bites stop itching.
The first thing you can do after you’ve got bitten by a mosquito is to crush a tablet of aspirin…
This is where you can make a paste-like substance with the aspirin using a few a drops of water. Add a little bit of water on the pulverized aspirin, just enough to dissolve it in a rich paste. Make sure that you don’t add too much since you would not want something watery. Blend it up with your spoon until you get a nice texture. Wash your hands and the inflamed area of your skin with soap and water. Pat the area dry. Then take the aspirin paste you made and apply it liberally on the mosquito bite. This will help alleviate the itching and will stop you from scratching it. This remedy works by dissolving the enzymes in the mosquito’s saliva. It won’t take too long for the bite to flatten out, so leaving the paste on your skin for at least an hour will work fine.
