You cannot bite the bugs back so you have to deal with the results of them biting you and your pets. Some simple handy plants/products help those welts that itch and burn:
1) Reach for some Plantain , which is typically taking over your fields or lawns. Take the leaves and macerate them (either chew them or mash them) to bring out the plant juices. You can apply the juice directly to the bite for rapid relief.
2) Wipe on a witch hazel based product like Sore No More liniment to relieve the itching and burning almost immediately. The witch hazel acts as an astringent, which is a substance that contracts the tissues, thereby reducing the discharge and inflammation.
3) Homeopathic Apis is made from the bee. Apis triggers the body to react to the bug bite and resolve it.
4) Aloe Vera juice can provide some relief topically. When we think of aloe, we think of a burn remedy. It has much more widespread usage and should be thought of to help take the sting out of bites.
