HEALTH TIP OF THE WEEK
Treat mosquito bites
Bitten by one of those pesky little bloodsuckers? Don't scratch. Apply a hydrocortisone cream, calamine lotion or a paste. To make a paste, take about 1 teaspoon (about 5 milliliters) of water and mix with an equal volume of dry meat tenderizer. Apply several times a day until your symptoms subside. A cold pack or baggie filled with crushed ice may help, too.
