How to Make a Mosquito Bite Stop Itching. The itch from a mosquito bite is annoying and almost unbearable for some people. Depending on where you are, getting rid of the itch can be as simple as applying an everyday item found in the household. Follow these easy steps and you will be itch-free.

Things You'll Need

  • Patience
  • Antihistamine spray
  • Antihistamine cream
  • Toothpaste
  • Mud
  • Ice cube

Spray antihistamine spray on the area. You can purchase this spray at any supermarket and most convenience stores. The spray will take the itch away within minutes.

Put toothpaste on the site of the mosquito bite. The fluoride in the toothpaste acts as an antihistamine and will take the itch out of the bite in a matter of minutes.

Rub antihistamine cream on the bitten area. Like the allergy pills you take orally, antihistamine cream is designed to combat the effects of adverse reactions to pollen, mold and, of course, the bite or sting of a flying critter. Like the toothpaste, it will take the itch out of the mosquito bite.

If you're outdoors and you have no other supplies, put mud on the bite. It will cool it and take the itch away. This isn't the cleanest remedy ever designed, but it's sure to work in a pinch.

If you have no other options, hold an ice cube to the bite. It won't take the itch away permanently, but it will numb the area and remedy the itch for a moment.

Tips & Warnings

  • Never scratch the bite. It might be difficult to resist, but scratching will only make it itch worse. Scratching it too hard for too long could make it bleed and even scar.
  • If the area around the bite does not heal or stop itching using the above methods, or if you break out in hives or contract other symptoms, call your doctor immediately. You may be having an allergic reaction.
