    I have a couple of Aloe plants growing.  Whenever I get a bite, I cut off a piece and rub the juice over the bite.  The itch is all gone!  Works for ant bites, too!

    Lemon or lime juice will usually do the trick in stopping mosquito bites from itching.  Rub generously all over your bites.  Lemon and lime juice also act as a natural antibacterial.  If this method doesn't work, than try some tea leave or lavender oil mildly diluted Wiith water to reduce the acidity of the oils which can be highly acidic and harsh to some skin types.  Hope these methods help.

    After I scratch it a few times so that I know where it is, I use a finernail and press directly into it for about 30 seconds. It may take 2,  (or maybe 3), times but this stops the itching because it stops the poison from running up any farther.

    i tried a bannana peel with a true skeptic point of view and it worked and it worked instantly and didnt itch again after. i was shocked that it was so simple and successful
