3) RUBBING ALCOHOL
Rubbing alcohol can be used to clean a cut, remove sticky stuff from your hands, and even sanitize your cell phone. It can also dry out mosquito bites and stop the bites from itching. Another non-medically endorsed option: Drink lots of alcohol (i.e. booze) so you’ll be too hammered to realize what itches!
4) APPLY CALAMINE LOTION
It’s a bright pink lotion that doesn’t exactly make you look more handsome when caked on your body, but it works to stop a bug bite from itching because it contains pramoxine, a compound that helps control pain, says Dr. Greenberg.
