Mosquito bites are common but what irritates the most is the pesky spots and bumps on skin after the stings.
There are many repellents available in the market but still, we do end up getting fly bites invariably. The irresistible urge to itch makes the spots deeper.
If you are also having those spots then fret not as we have compiled some of the best ways to get rid of mosquito bite scars:
- Vitamin E
Vitamin has great properties that help to heal skin. Take a Vitamin E capsule poke it and remove the gel and mix with olive oil or you can directly buy and use vitamin E oil. Make sure you apply the oil to the marks twice or thrice a day. This is one the easiest and effective way to heal those spots and redness.
- Foods like tomato, lemon and papaya can come to rescue.
Take a slick tomato or lemon, or papaya and rub onto the bite marks twice a day. These foods have skin lightening power and aid to disappear scars. Let the juices get absorbed into the skin for around 10 minutes and later rinse it off.
- Coconut oil
Another best and easy way is the application of coconut oil. Coconut oil works well to lighten those nasty marks created from stings.
- Aloe vera
Aloe vera is known for many properties that are useful for our skin. Convert aloe vera gel in an ice form and later apply on affected areas. So you will be relieved from swelling and itchiness.
Licorice which is also known as Mulethi is an anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich substance and has skin lightening properties and can aid to disappear hyperpigmented spots. Treat the area by applying mulethi and later rinse off with water. After few days you should get the results.
Make sure you do not prick or scratch on those bite marks as this can lead to deep scars and also try and avoid exposure to sun as the same can lead to darkening.
