INSECT BITES AND STINGS

# Tenderizer tenderizes Make a paste of 1/4 tsp meat tenderizer and 1 to 2 tsp water. Rub the paste into the sting area as soon as possible after the sting. Repeat in an hour if it still stings. The tenderizer contains papain, an enzyme derived from the papaya fruit that can break down venoms, making them harmless. ( Don't try this with a scorpion sting which requires immediate medical attention ).

# Centre with vinegar
A drop of vinegar rubbed into the centre of the bite can bring quick, long lasting relief. And more, you don't feel like scratching. Simultaneously, it increases the blood flow to the area which helps to quickly carry off the spot of venom the insect has deposited under the surface as well as the chemicals your body has produced in reaction to the venom.

# Try baking soda
A paste of sodium bicarbonate and water applied on a mosquito bite will work like an antihistamine, relieving the itch without the risk of the drug's side effects.

# Pass the hot pepper
Red pepper won't draw out the venom, but will take your mind off the itch by counter irritation. The result ? Less itch.

# Chop an onion
Onions contain enzymes that help break down prostaglandins - chemicals that your body releases in response to pain. They also contain quercetin, an anti-allergic chemical good for relieving inflammation.
