The other day I was packing up the back of the trunk to take a few things to work. The result? I ended up being mosquito bait. A couple hours later as I was lying in bed, did the results of those nasty little buggers started to erupt. I got up, and the whole top of one foot and around the ankle were completely swollen with bites. I didn't have any After Bite, Calamine Lotion, and knew that I needed to try something to make me not start itching.
So I did some research...and one of the weirdest things that was suggested was deodorant or an anti-perspirant. I used what I had on hand, which was Nivea's Double Effect Anti-Perspirant, which is a stick. Within seconds, I had relief. The next morning I woke up and even the swelling was down probably by 80%. I did find that I needed to reapply when I woke up, but I felt so much relief. On top of it, the anti-perspirant I use has avocado extracts, so my foot didn't feel too dry.
So, what do you use in your fight against mosquito relief?
