Home Remedy For Bug Bites

What if you run out of anti-itch medicine when you or one of the kids is consumed with an itchy bug bite? Well, you may have a good option in your bathroom.

If you're scratching like crazy, try dabbing a little roll-on antiperspirant directly on the bite. According to research at St. Louis University, antiperspirant contains aluminum salts that can help your body reabsorb the fluid in bug bites.

This not only will that help reduce the itching, but will also make the swelling go down.
