QotD: Mosquitoes

Question: How do you deal with mosquito bites?

My Answer: Toothpaste. Yes, you read correctly. Dab a little toothpaste on, rub it in, and the itchy feeling goes away. It cools and comforts. I think it has to do with the fluoride or something. Anyway, it works. And believe me, I know - I just tested it out again today.

  1. I do wonder, though, which kind of toothpaste has the most itch-killing power.

  2. Hmmm...never thought of that. Thanks for the tips. But what I usually did was to hit my nail across the bite in a crossmark fashion and the itch seems to go away.

  3. It's easy how I deal with them, I live in the middle of the desert in Arizona. It does a pretty good job of keeping them away. 🙂
