20 Weird (But Effective!) DIY Home Remedies [PICS]

3. Cure Itchy Bug Bites with a Concentrated Blast of Heat

DIY3

Itchy bug bites can drive you crazy, and scratching them too intensely could actually lead to an infection.

Fortunately, you can zap the itchiness out of any bite by applying heat directly to it. This will be best accomplished with a hairdryer, but you can also use a heat pack.

The trick is to apply as much heat as you can stand for up to 20 seconds without burning yourself. After which, you will not feel any itchiness anymore. You might have to repeat this process two or three times, but your bite will stop itching altogether much more quickly than usual.
