Itching the scratches

As my sister used to call it. I am officially one big mosquito bite. Mosquitos never used to bother me. This summer oh my gosh! They are eating me up!

And I don't just have the small little bump that itches. Each bite swells to about the same diameter as a quarter. And they are raised and ITCH!

But heres a little secret from Red. Put Icy-Hot on the bites. The initial cooling helps the itch. Then the follow up warm tingling from the Icy-Hot really almost feels like it's scratching them for you. So you don't end up tearing your skin up scratching and possibly getting them infected.

Hey it works.


  • If you don't have any Icy Hot, use regular rubbing alcohol (no voddy pls), it dries up the bug juice causing the itchies to begin with.
