How to Treat a Mosquito Bite

Natural Remedies

Unique Outdoor understands that mosquitos are pesky creatures and can be quite the annoyance. Whenever you are in a transition period or taking a pause from our services a mosquito bite can occur. In the event that you get bit, there are a number of natural remedies that can provide relief from the occasional bite. 

Aloe Vera

The Aloe Vera plant is an effective natural remedy based on the plant’s anti-inflammatory properties. Healthline experts explain how the Aloe vera plant is able to heal minor wounds and calm infections. When you cut open a small section of the plant you can apply the plant’s gel to the irritated area and use it again as needed. Also, for a more soothing experience put the plant section in the refrigerator or freezer to add a cooling effect to bite. 

Baking Soda

In addition to Aloe Vera baking soda is a multi-purpose item found in most households and scientifically known as sodium bicarbonate. The properties from baking soda can provide relief from mosquito bites. When you make the solution, use 1 tablespoon of baking soda and enough water to make a paste. Then leave the solution on the bug bite for 10 minutes and wash away.


Healthline also mentions that apple cider vinegar has been used for centuries as a solution to treat a variety of medical conditions including bug bites. Vinegar can help reduce stinging and itching sensations while also acting as a disinfectant. If your bite requires more relief try soaking a washcloth in cold water and vinegar to apply the solution to bug bite areas.
