If you're wary about smothering your skin with DEET to ward off mosquitoes, you probably end up with a few too many bug bites. The itchiness can drive you nuts, especially if you're hot or trying to sleep. Although scratching the affected area might offer immediate relief, it'll only cause more inflammation, which makes it itch even more, but worse, if you scratch the bite until it bleeds, opening the skin with your dirty fingernails can put you at risk for an infection. If you're a magnet for mosquito bites, here are some healthy ways to relieve that annoying itch.

1. BANANA PEEL

Rub the area with inside of the banana peel. The sugars from the peel may help draw fluid out of the bite.

2. Baking Soda

Create paste of baking soda and water and add to the area.

3. Lemon or Lime Juice

4. Onions:

A slice of Onion will immediately remove pain from the bites.

5. Salt:

For fast relief, moisten the bite with a little water and gently rub it with finely ground salt. Or better yet, if you're near the beach, go for a saltwater swim.

6. Apple cider vinegar:

Diluted in your bathtub, it not only can soothe sunburn, but the
malic acid in apple cider vinegar can also soothe your itch. Not into taking a bath? Dab a few drops on a cotton ball and apply directly to the affected areas.

7. Tea tree oil:

A natural anti-inflammatory that can help with acne or poison ivy, this essential oil can also help reduce swelling and prevent infection if you can't help but scratch.

8. Slapping :

It may seem a little odd, but you can confuse your nerves by slapping the area with your hands, and your brain won't be able to discern between itch and pain.
