Mosquito bites are no fun! A single bite can quickly cause itching, redness, and swelling. In some cases, they may even result in terrible allergic reactions. If you’re struggling with mosquitos in your backyard, it’s time to call Wagner Pest Solutions. Then follow our guide on how to heal mosquito bites quickly.
Apply Cold Water
The instantaneous remedy to alleviate skin inflammation, redness, and itching is to wash the affected area with cold water. Cold water will help dissipate the heat and can reduce the pain and itching of the mosquito bite. For the best results, you can soak a clean washcloth in cold water and compress the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes.
Apply Hydrocortisone Cream
To further soothe the skin and stop the itch, apply a hydrocortisone cream. Apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area before going to bed, and you’ll find that it will give you quick relief immediately.
Like the cold water method, ice is also a quick and comforting remedy. If you notice a mosquito bite, immediately go ahead and place a piece of ice on it, which will help numb the area and may prevent swelling. You can also use any cold object you have available, like a cold pack or cold soda can from the cooler.
