pop it

girlly guide
f*c*k the mosquito

ewww it hurts alot between ur fingers ewwww
idk wut u can use bt next time use off

malaria child

You might be allergic.

if this never happened to you before then you should go to the doctor

The Motherload
I think you have the West Nile Virus.

If you have any mean tenderizer, make a paste and put it on it.

Or if you have bug spray like OFF for the skin, spray a little on it . For some unknown reason it makes it go away.

go to a store and buy some itch cream, and soothing stuff for swelling. if the swelling doesn't stop within a week, go to a doctor. you might be allergic to mosquitos.

cold compress, clean it with alcohol, put a little anti-biotic oinment or some camphophenique for the itch. DON'T SCRATCH OR PICK.

By the way, this is a mom saying this, mosquito bites are not an emergency.

i would say to just dont scratch it at all or ask your doctor about it


Nurse Susan
Sorry, not an emergency [ look up the definition ].
1] wash it well
2] dab with peroxide
3] apply Caladryl lotion, three times a day
4] DON'T scratch - it can get infected
Squishy? Are you sure it is a mosquito bite?

Wash it real well. Avoid scratching if you can..( I know it's hard!!) Use some hydrocortizone. It works for me!

Well... me and my mom both have the same problem. We searched on line and found out that you can either mix one spoon of baking powder and two spoons of water. Then get a cotton ball and soak it in the mix. Then leave it on the mosquito bite for one hour. Or just cut an onion half and leave it on the mosquito bite for one hour. I tried it and it actually works! Hope It helps!

Put After Bite on, don't scratch it, put on a band aid, and leave it alone. If you scratch it it will only get worse.

How to treat a mosquito bite:

* First, clean the infected area with soap and HOT water.
* Stop scratching the mosquito bite! We know, not easy, but it only aggravates the bite.
* Rub the bite with rubbing alcohol if available. This will cool the bug bite and also disinfect it.
* Take a couple tablespoons of baking soda and mix it with water to create a pasty substance. Apply the home remedy paste to the mosquito bite.
* If baking soda is unavailable, rub soap on the bite and leave it on.
* Go to the store and purchase some calamine lotion to have on hand next time.

go out to the store and buy benadrill anti itch cream. it really works

take some benadryl. and use some anti itch stuff or ice it. i think that the benadryl anti itch stuff works the best.

Take 400mg of Ibuprofen

Tom S
ice it bro

uh just put ice and ask ur mom and maybe hydrocotozone and DONT SCRATH IT!!!!! lol good luck

Take Benadryl or some other antihistimine (like for colds and allergy) liquid seems to work best.
Ice pack helps the sewlling and numbs it some

miss T
If you can get hold of Calamine lotion that is brilliant, it cools the bite down and is really soothing. Oh, and leave it alone. :) xx

Wash it with soap. Other than that, don't scratch it.


I use alcohol and will always go away the next day, the key is not to scratch.

dancing panda fury
no do not pop it!!

Benadryl or hydrocortozone.

whenever i get bit but a mosquito i swell up

i use lotion and it stops the itch
and if you want you could try afterbite

and for the swelling i put ice on it

it really does help
