Best trick ever for mosquito bites....As soon as you feel the itch of the mosquito bite, rub a glue stick on it. The itch will go away in 15 minutes and it won't come back at all! The swelling of the bump goes down, as well. No idea why this works, but it's amazing! No more itchy bug bites that last a week, with me scratching my skin raw.
