Home Remedies For Mosquito Bites On Babies


Published:

Mosquitoes are ubiquitous and it is very challenging to prevent bites without the application of topical agents. In addition to practicing prevention with environmental deterrents, there are many natural home remedies for mosquito bites on babies. They are simple and very effective.

Below are top natural home remedies for mosquito bites on babies.

Baking Soda

One of the most popular home remedies for mosquito bites on babies is baking soda which is inexpensive. Its alkaline characteristics are beneficial for restoring the pH level on the skin and reducing itchiness quickly.
• One teaspoon of baking soda should be dissolved in 1 cup of water.
• A clean cloth needs to be dipped in it and placed over itchy areas for about 10-15 minutes.

Lemon

With anesthetic and anti-inflammatory properties, lemon is one of the simplest and most effective home remedies for mosquito bites on babies.
• A lemon should be cut into 2 pieces and rubbed over affected areas.
• Alternatively, you can use freshly squeezed lemon juice to rub over the skin.

Salt

Also being anti-inflammatory and antiseptic, sea salt is another effective home remedy for mosquito bites on babies which you can find immediately in the kitchen. Simply use the sea salt water to clean the skin areas bitten by mosquitoes. You can also combine garlic salt and water to get better results.

Garlic

When a baby’s skin becomes swollen due to mosquito bites, a soothing ingredient like garlic helps. It has been used commonly to cope with swelling and itchiness for years. Furthermore, the strong smell of garlic will deter mosquitoes.
• Rub garlic over areas bitten by mosquitoes.
• Several minutes later, use water to clean the skin.

Aloe Vera

Known as a natural antiseptic agent, aloe vera is one of the best home remedies for mosquito bites on babies. Not only is it beneficial for the skin, but it is also effective in treating swelling, itchiness and pain.
• Keep the gel in the fridge 10-15 minutes to make it cold first.
• Then, apply it immediately over areas affected.

Ice

The coldness of ice cubes will prevent inflammatory substances from distributing to areas bitten by mosquitoes. As a result, your babies will not feel pain or itchy any more. Ice is really one of the simplest, but most effective home remedies for mosquito bites on babies.
• Hold some ice cubes in a clean cloth.
• Dab it over the skin in approximately 15 minutes.

Toothpaste

Toothpaste can be dabbed directly over areas bitten by mosquitoes to reduce the itchy and painful feeling within a short period of time. Stick to holistic varieties free of fluoride and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

Honey

A variety of applications of honey in the medical world come from its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. Spreading a thin layer of honey on a mosquito bite soothes and curbs inflammation.

Apple Cider Vinegar

With its alkaline nature, apple cider vinegar can be regarded as one of the greatest home remedies for mosquito bites. However, it should be diluted in warm water and the mixture should be applied sparingly to babies.

Tea Bags

Last but not least, used tea bags work thanks to the high content of tannins which are astringent. Tea bags can reduce itchiness quickly by removing fluids in the bite.
