Welcome to Miami....and hello bug bites :(

I'm currently living it up in Miami Beach, Fl for my rotation and loving it, but I've got some awful mosquito bites on my legs. So here's a few at home remedies you may want to try if you're in the same situation as me.

1. A small dab of toothpaste
2. Put deodarant over the bite
3. Aloe lotion (that seems to stop the itch for only a little bit)
4. Salt-wet the area of the bug bite and put a little salt over it
5. Lemon

In my opinion, the toothpaste works the best. It stays on the longest and has the best effect.

But more importantly, try to avoid even getting bit by these bugs and reduce the use of scented lotions and perfumes.
