Day 213 – Soap as Mosquito Bite Soother

{2 Comments}

This is one that definitely makes you think, “Does this really work??” The answer is no. This didn’t work at all. Not for me at least. I really wanted it to work too. Mosquitoes love me. I can be outside for a few seconds to grab something and come back in with at least one mosquito bite. It’s ridiculous.

Apparently, you are supposed to be able to take a dry bar of soap and rub in on a mosquito bite for immediate relief. Any soap is supposed to work, so I used Dove.

I got two different bites around the same time so I tried the soap on one and left the other alone so I could compare. Sadly, there was no difference. Both were still itchy and annoying.

Maybe this will work for you though. It’s worth a try since everyone has a bar of soap laying around. Let me know if you have more luck!

  1. My sister told me about this recently so I tried this weekend and it did not work for me either…

  2. I always use toothpaste on my mosquito bites. I recently came across something (though can’t remember for the life of me where I read it) that says you need to cut the oxygen supply to the bite. It suggested covering it with a piece of scotch tape or cover it with clear polish.
    My sister tried the polish method and she said it worked really well. 🙂
