Whats the best way to stop a mosquito bite from itching?
Its a simple anti-histamine pill. A mosquito bite triggers your immune system to respond. The mosquito's saliva has anti-coagulants that make your blood easier to drink.
Your body sends anti-bodies to fight these foreign enzymes. The anti-bodies set off the production of histamines which causes the blood vessels and surrounding skin to swell, making the bite red and itchy too.
Anti-Histamines block histamines from causing inflammation. Oral doses of anti-histamines have been shown to work best.
