         Oatmeal

Oatmeal can relieve itching and swelling because it contains special compounds that have anti-irritant qualities.

Make an oatmeal paste by mixing equal amounts of oatmeal and water in bowl until you have a spackle-like substance.

Put the paste on irritated area.

                 Crushed Ice

Cold temperatures and ice can reduce inflammation.  The cold numbs the skin, which can give you immediate but short term relief. Don’t leave ice on affected area for over 5 minutes it can damage the skin.

                   Honey

This sugary sweet substance is a common pick among home remedy enthusiast because it has many antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties.  

A small drop on an itchy bite will reduce your temptation to itch, as itching skin covered in honey can create a sticky mess.
