I hate bugs. I hate bugs. I HATE BUGS. Do you
know the only thing I hate more than bugs? Bugs that
bite! We have a great conversation going on about
how to keep bugs away, but wanted to talk about a weird tip I
just heard for post bug bite...
A friend told me if you put a piece of tape on the bug bite, it
cuts off oxygen to the bite and it stops itching very
quickly. Sounds a little strange to me. Has anyone
tried this? Does it work? Isn't our blood oxygenated
and therefore what does the tape really do? Anyway, this guy
swears by it - just wondering if anyone else has tried this
Interesting. I will have to give it a try.
I have never heard of using tape on a bug bite. To relieve the
itching from bug bites (red bugs, mosquitoes,etc...), I soak in a
warm bath mixed with baking soda. This is especially helpful
when you have a lot of bug bites.
Hmmm. I'm not sure about that one Dan. How about you get some
bug bites this weekend and give it a try.
I'll just use bug spray and save the tape for wrapping
I've never tried tape but I always pack a bottle of Tea Tree Oil
when we're camping. It soothes bug bites.
Sending son out to get bitten as soon as he gets off of
