Calamine lotion and itch medications are easily available at drugs stores for itch relief. However, there are many natural – chemical free – options to help children deal with insect bites. Here are a few good tips…
First off, apparently; Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a natural bug repellant.
Baking Soda made into a paste will help relieve bee stings.
Rub the inside of a banana skin
to a mosquito bite. However, note – banana scents do attract bees (that’s a catch 22 isn’t it?!)
Tea Tree oil helps bites, stings, scrapes & cuts and other skin irritations.
Vinegar is also a great natural remedy to insect bites.
Remove a stinger by scraping it out with a finger nail (or a credit card works too). Squeezing the stinger will cause more venom to be released.
