    • Kristyn LNU

      SUCCESS (sort of): mosquito bite remedy (I used Ivory soap) On 6MAR I got my first bug bite. Used Ivory bar and it DID stop itching! In fact, it went away all together! NOTE: you almost have to do this as soon as you get bit. Tried this on a day old bite, and it didn't seem to work.
