Applying Saliva to Mosquito Bites to Relief Itchiness
Ayden woke up from his nap all itchy and restless. He kept scratching his legs and when I checked, there were 3 red dots from mosquito bites. Darn. Immediately I applied my saliva onto those dots to stop the itch.
Do you believe it? That applying saliva on mosquito bites will immediately stop the itch? I do as I have been doing that since I got Ethan almost 8 years ago.
When I was younger, I used to use my fingernails to mark the dots with an ‘X’. I don’t know why but somehow it feels so much better when I put a cross on those bite marks. These days I can’t do that anymore as we are not allowed to simply put a ‘cross’ anywhere as it is religion sensitive >_<
Back to applying saliva on mosquito bites, it really helps. I don’t recommend applying on broken skin though. I use it as the first stage relief especially when I am out of the house with nothing in hand. I’ll always have my saliva with me so just quickly apply some and the itch is gone almost immediately. It is really amazing. You should try this too the next time you get kissed by a mosquito. Ayden got bitten by a kerengga (big red ants) in the playground once and I quickly applied saliva on it. It works too as he doesn’t feel any itch. You’ll still see the red dot but the itch won’t be there.
Anyway, after I applied my saliva onto Ayden’s leg today, I left him there to go into the kitchen to wash my hands. I walked out to see him applying HIS saliva onto his legs! His entire leg is already full of saliva yet he is still trying to spit out more saliva to apply!!!
Ish! Monkey see monkey do lah this little boy of mine >_<
