Monsoon is here, and we are surrounded by so many Insects. Within a month Ojas got attacked by insects twice. North India is actually famous for mosquitoes I think 🤪.

How to save our kids?

Prevention is always better than a cure. And I mean it. There are so many products available in the market to protect your kid like,

📍Repellent Spray/ roll-on

📍Coils/ sticks


📍Fast card

📍All out / Goodknight etc.

Apart from this,

📍Keep your windows and gate closed especially in the evening

📍Keep your baby inside when Insects are roaming outside.

📍 Make sure your baby is wearing completely covered clothes.

📍Keep your surroundings clean.

After keeping all these things in mind, still baby got bite by insect then you can try these home remedies.

𝙉𝙤𝙩𝙚: Before trying anything make sure that red bump is an insect bite and nothing else. Clean the affected area with antiseptic liquid before applying anything.

𝗛𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆: The soothing properties of honey will help ease itching and also prevent infection.

𝗔𝗹𝗼𝗲 𝗩𝗲𝗿𝗮: Aloe Vera is great for most skin-related problems. I personally use this method for an insect or ant bite or any heat rash. Fresh aloe vera leaf store in a refrigerator and apply when it's required.

𝗟𝗲𝗺𝗼𝗻 𝗝𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗲: Lemon juice is a good disinfectant. My sister using this for every insect/bee bite. You may take a few drops of lemon juice and apply them on the affected area or rub a lemon peel softly.

𝗧𝗼𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗽𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲: Apply a small amount of toothpaste on the affected area to provide relief from itching and swelling.

𝗞𝗮𝗶𝗹𝗮𝘀𝗵 𝗷𝗲𝗲𝘃𝗮𝗻 𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁: This was suggested by my blogger friend. This is available in Kerala.

𝗕𝗮𝗹𝗺/ 𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗸𝘀 𝘃𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘂𝗯: Since my childhood, my mother used to apply these to minimize the swelling and pain. And it actually works like magic.

𝗖𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘂𝘁 𝗼𝗶𝗹 + 𝗖𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗵𝗼𝗿 (𝗸𝗮𝗽𝗼𝗼𝗿): I tried this as well. This will moisturize the skin and protect it from itching. Camphor has some cooling properties.

𝗔𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗯𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗺/ 𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗺: I have heard that these products actually work for insect bites, but I haven't tried yet. Do patch test before applying directly on the bitten area

𝗧𝘂𝗿𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗰 𝗺𝗶𝘅 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗵𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆: Both contain antiseptic properties. This may work as well.

𝗣𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘂𝘁 𝗢𝗶𝗹: Everyone knows about the cooling properties of coconut water. It protects skin with marks as well.
