Most insect bites are painful and itchy! Starting with spider bites (which will never transform you into Spiderman) to ticks, chiggers, mosquitoes and, especially bees, most stings are quit painful and may lead to certain skin issues.
So, in case you’ve been bitten by an insect, especially by a mosquito or bee, you should know that you can manage the pain at home. Of course, if the pain is mild to moderate, otherwise you should see a doctor immediately.
However, if you experience symptoms as…
- Rash and redness
- Local pain
- Tingling sensation

1. Tea Tree Oil
Mix 2 drops of Tea Tree Oil and 1 teaspoon of carrier oil and apply the mixture to the affected area. Leave it to act as long as possible.
Apply it 2 times a day.
2. Baking Soda
Mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 3 spoons of water. Dip a cotton ball into this mixture and apply it to the affected area by leaving it to act until it dries.
Repeat this 2-3 times a day.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Mix equal amounts of ACV with water then dip a cotton ball in this mixture and apply it to the affected area. Leave it to act for 30 minutes, and then rinse it with water.
4. Aloe Vera
I guess this is the most effective natural remedy for bug stings and bites. Just cut an aloe vera leaf in half and apply the gel directly onto the bite. Leave it act as such. Repeat 3 times a day.
5. Rubbing Alcohol
Just apply rubbing alcohol with a cotton pad on the affected area and let it act. Repeat as many times as needed.
6. Turmeric Paste
Mix turmeric powder with water to form a thick paste. Apply the paste directly on the bite and let it act for 30 minutes. Rinse it off and apply it at least 3 times a day.
Most people wonder how to avoid mosquito and bee bites and stings, but let’e be truthful with ourselves: there’s no way in avoiding that unless you don’t get out of the house. During summer, insects are all around us, and most of them cause just bites and do no harm. As you can see above, there are plenty of ways in getting rid of any summer bug bite.
