How to Stop Scratching that Mosquito Itch!

When you’re bitten by mosquito you know about it! Those blood suckers don’t let us feel the pain and irritation until a good few hours after they’ve feasted on us. Their needle noses are so fine that they don’t touch our nerve senses, however what they ‘pump’ back into us is a whole different story which causes that itch and the urge to scratch. Here’s an article to give you a little relief from the irritation.

6 Ways to Stop Your Mosquito Bites from Itching Right Now
