What Is Good For Bug Bites?

It is not just in the hot summer weather than we tend to get bitten by nasty bugs and ticks but an all year round problem and it affects some people more than others. When I get bitten by a bug the bitten area can swell to an alarming size and most of the time can be very itchy and inflamed and the medications help to fight and relieve the problems do not always work, if anything I feel at times I am being exploited by the drug market. We hear of the so called old wives tales of remedies and as quick as we dismiss them, they really do work, take my word for it I have tried and tested some and below your find the best of the best.

Lemon
The biggest problem derived from scratching one's itch is the threat of infections.
So, for itching that just won't stop, and if you just have to scratch, cut a lemon in half and scratch your itch with the soft pulpy side of it. This will reduce the chances of getting an infection from scratching with your fingernails.
