For some reason, the mosquitos are HORRIBLE in our yard. We have to spray the kids if they will be out for even 5 minutes. My favorite bug spray right now is Jason’s Quit Buggin Me spray.
A couple of days ago, I let my youngest out for a few minutes without spraying him, and he was covered in bites. I had picked up Hylands Homeopathic Bug Bite Ointment, and tried it out. It comes in a gluestick-like container, and you apply it directly to the bite. I found that it worked instantly to relieve the itching and swelling.
I tried it on myself the next day, and it also seemed to work immediately. I recommend this product for immediate releif from bites. If you have severe swelling from the bites, please see this article on how to treat the swelling, redness, and itch with homeopathic apis orally.
