    Charcoal poultices are excellent for insect bites and mosquito.  I have used it for mosquito trust me it works. When nothing else did charcoal worked for me.

    Poultices: 1 teaspoon of charcoal powder and 1 teaspoon of grind flaxseed powder. Add a little boiling water to form a thick paste and  spread the paste over a piece of cotton or muslin cloth to a size to completely cover the affected area cover this with cling film (plastic)  large enough to cover cloth then place another piece of cloth then a bandage then pin in place.

    Leave on over night or 8-10 hour during the day. after removing poultices bath and rub the area with a cold cloth. 

    For bigger bites use more charcoal and flaxseed powder.

    I meant insect bite. The keys on my keyboard have been sticking. Sorry to all about that.

    Relieve the itching of common bug bites by dabbing straight vinegar right onto the bites.

    Raw garlic rubbed on a bite will numb the skin. Apple cider vinegar will also relieve the itch. If the bite is causing pain a raw cayenne pepper can be applied directly to the bite however it will sting for a minute, but the pain will end quickly.

    The Homeopathic company Boiron makes a product called Apis Mellifica.  It's a homeopathy product which is therapeutically active micro-doses of all sort of different properties including flowers, minerals, and biological substances thats actually the cause of the reaction your looking to correct.  Cool stuff huh? They are safe and effective for adults, children, and even pets.  No interaction with any other medications and no risk of overdosing.  Apis Mellifica is used for swelling insect bites and other allergies.  I've had great success with it.

    In conjunction with the homeopathic product I used Sovereign silver gel. It's a homeopathic silver first aid topical gel that helps reduce redness and pain, good for all types of skin issues, bug bites and stings, plus so much more.  Check them out at … re_Low.pdf This product felt great on my red inflamed skin. 

    These two products worked very well.  I recommend them to my clients all the time.  I also really like the Charcoal poultice idea.

    Happy Trails.
