I explain how to treat bed bug bites with natural home remedy below, but if you dont get rid of them in the first place, youll just end up treating your bites again so make sure to visit our section dedicated to bed bug treatment and extermination.
Bed bug bites can range in severity based on the person being bitten. Some dont even notice the bite while others swell or even become infected. Take Julios picture below for example, this is was a bad reaction to bed bug bites and it wasnt just his arm, his entire body looked like this! Think that was bad, check out these other bed bug bites!
How to treat bed bug bites? By far, the most popular answer is with baking soda and water to make a paste that you then place on the bite and let dry. Here is exactly how to treat the bites
Witch hazel, St. Johns Wort and Lemon juice all work by removing the desire to itch (Astringents).
The gel from the Aloe plant is how many treat bed bug bites and contains anti-fungal and antibiotic properties that work great! Simply trim a tip and apply the exposed area to the bite.
Handed down from generations is the bath with peppermint oil, fill the tub with bath water, then add a half cup of peppermint oil to relieve the itching.
By far, the most popular suggestion for dealing with bites is using Tea Tree Oil. Tea Tree Oil is an essential oil derived from steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca Alternifolia. Its the oil from these leaves that are used for medicinal purposes, such as healing cuts, burns, bites and infections.
Tea Tree Oil is said to have antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Uses other than treatment for bed bug bites include: Acne, Lice, Thrush, Dandruff and many more.
Note: Warnings found on the internet claim that tea tree oil may alter hormone levels and unexpected breast enlargement in boys. Undiluted oil may irritate skin or cause redness and blisters. Tea tree oil should not be taken internally. Dont use tea tree oil if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Theres a great folk remedy for the itching: In the bath or shower, use water just as hot as you can stand to treat the bites for a few minutes. It itches intensely for a few seconds, but then there is relief for many hours.
