And that is why over the years, people have come up with various home remedies to soothe the itch caused by an insect bite. And, since people living in the tropics experience mosquito bites more frequently, here are some easy to create mosquito bite remedies you can do at home!
No matter how itchy it may be, you should withhold from scratching the area bitten by an insect to prevent further infections. Instead, try applying cold compress on the area of the insect bite to help ease the swelling and itch(3).
