I'll have to try some of those. My old remedy for mosquito bites was to simply scratch until it bled or to endure it.

I haven't been stung in years but I think I would just cry it out.

I scratch them too, simply because it feels good and it's kinda like my payback for when I get poison ivy and can't scratch! LOL!!!

Good to know. I usually whack Sudocrem on but it would be good to try something natural and the onion sounds easy!

I wonder if there are any natural insect repellents you can apply to the skin? I wondered about this for Daniel to enable him to play out for longer in the evenings in the summer hols. We have a brook at the end of our street and consequently get a lot of midges once the temperature drops for the day. I am going to get some citronella candles to burn but would still like something I could apply direct to his skin.
