Summe’r issue: How to treat Sunburn and mosquito bites
Two things already happened to me this summer:
- Me and my family got sunburnt to our bones. We just went to a friend’s house, feeding the goats and playing with the cat and duck. The irresponsible mummy didn’t think about sunblock. If we went to the beach I would remember but we were just visiting a friend and one thing led to another, we were maybe 2 hours out and came home sparkling red.
- In another occasion we were all bitten by probably sandflies. That’s really mean, really, really, really mean. My 5 year old could not sleep, my 4 yo scratched until bleeding. we tried Aloe Vera, Coconut oil, Weleda gel from the pharmacy, oatmeal and my anti-fungal ointment (we were desperate). Each gave us some relief but nothing ended it up. And I felt like I can not make oatmeal baths all day long.
Until I found this article.
And gave it a try immediately.
What do you know, it treated the sunburn well but also the bites (I wish I knew it 2 weeks ago) I think I’ll give it a try for any kind of itch.
So, to make a long story short: How to treat sunburn and mosquito bites
Make a real strong tea, I used 3 black tes bags in a cup but I think any tea will do,
Squeeze it and extract it as much as you can
Let it cool, completely
Then apply on infected area with a cotton wool and do not wash
Do it several times, like every hour or two
The day after you will have no sunburn, you will switch from an overcooked lobster to Enrique Iglasias in one day.
And the mosquito bites will cease to itch, though will still be there.
Give it a try and let me know. And of course, if you have a better idea, share it with us, we all want to know.
