Help Relive the Itch of Bug Bites and Insect Bites with Colloidal Oatmeal
It seems that every year, I try to figure out a way to defeat bugs. One year it was eating garlic every day. It worked some, but my friends couldn’t stand me. Then I tried drinking Apple Cider Vinegar. And that worked, I think, but I couldn’t stick with the program. My own fault.
Bug sprays work, but I try to avoid damaging my skin, and the environment as much as possible, and I’ve heard some bad things about DEET. I’ve used it before when traveling in Central America, and it probably saved me some huge itching and scratching, but in the U.S., I avoid it.
So, I face up to the facts that biting, stinging bugs will get me all spring, summer, and fall. Mosquitoes will find you, nibbling on your ankles. A spider may slip into your dirty clothes hamper and snack on your leg. Ouch. Or chiggers may plague you after a hike in the woods.
Use the Oatmeal
Colloidal Oatmeal may not prevent stings and bites, but it will help soothe them. A friend had the worst case of chigger bites I’d ever seen, with no relief with the over the counter remedies in the drugstore. I made some colloidal oatmeal and gave it to her, and she took many, many oatmeal baths. It was one of the only things that gave her comfort.
Colloidal Oatmeal works. It comforts you, and makes you not need to itch and scratch as much. And it leaves your skin silky smooth. Here are some products that you may like.
