Are there natural mosquito bite remedies?

Natural Mosquito Remedies

Studies suggest that some natural anti-inflammatory remedies are very effective mosquito bite remedies in some people: oral evening primrose oil (Lancet) and papaverine (Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology). You might find both of these products in a health food store.

Some more natural remedies and preventions against mosquito bites are:
• Insects are attracted to smells, so avoid concentrated perfumes and strong hair sprays in the summer.
• Bites or stings can be cooled and soothed with water, ice cubes or cold drink cans
• Use organic repellents to prevent getting bitten.

I find that simple rubbing alcohol will relieve the itch and eventuall make the bite go away within a short period.
