Mosquito Bite Home Remedy

Those antihistamine mosquito bite sprays and sticks barely even work for me. But after much experimenting, I have found the perfect solution. Tiger Balm.

Maybe Icy Hot and similar will work as well. Point being that itches are, in fact, tiny little pains. The same nerve receptors that give you the sensation of pain at high levels of activity, create itching at low levels. Thus a balm that works for muscle aches ought to work for mosquito bites. And indeed it does. The cool, warm, tingly sensation of Tiger Balm does a nice job of numbing and overriding the mosquito bite itch.
