I woke up this morning with two bug bites on my face. Yeah, my face. Not to be a negative Nelly, but c’mon—as if I don’t have enough other “challenges” to getting a zit-free face, now I’ve got two big, red mosquito bites that look like hellacious pimples to contend with? Great. (Also, it’s almost winter; how are mosquitos still alive? And why are they still buzzing around?) Here’s my dilemma: One of the bites is right next to my nose looking like an angry pimple, so I want to get it tamed ASAP. How do I do that? My first thought, no picking at it or scratching—I could end up with a scar. A few of my other mosquito bite tactics? After the jump ….Well, after trying (and failing, miserably) to “get the red out” by covering the bites in Visine, I smartened up and applied ice to the bites to bring down the swelling (this bug must have been monster-sized). After, I popped a Benadryl and went and bought some actual antihistamine cream. Now, I think I can also dump some calamine lotion on those bad boys, but then, yeah, I can’t really leave the house. A friend mentioned that I should wet an aspirin and put it on the bite and let it work its magic. Anything else you guys use to shrink bug bites? Help!
