Went camping this past weekend. It’s one of my favorite pastimes, takes a while to travel there, but it was awesome.
We had great weather, great water temperature, but oh man…the bugs were insane. It’s been a wet spring/summer here the Northeast (aside from those pesky heat waves) and it has brought forth a mass amount of mosquitoes.
Well, to shorten this story, I am now sitting back in my apartment nursing about 18 bites…mostly on my ankle/foot areas. I used bug spray and wore water shoes and jeans at dawn and dusk (when they’re most active).
I slathered on some Hydro-cortisone, but it wasn’t working and I was driving myself insane with itching and scratching!! I then remembered my mom telling me a long time ago that a friend of hers heard from a friend to use Preparation-H on mosquito bites. Yuck, right?? Although used for hemorrhoids as the box told me, I tried it and am blissfully itch free. You might smell funny, but my sanity is in tact. 😉
Note: read the directions on the Preparation-H (warnings etc…) before using on bites (or hemorrhoids I guess…)
