I just hate to have a bite or rash that itches! It is so irritating. To watch a small child tormented with bug bites is the worse. I don’t know about you, but I have never used an over-the-counter anti itch cream that works all that well. What is up with that? We have discovered a anti inch cream that works made from items you probably already have on hand. So get ready!
This summer my beautiful new sister- in- law from Texas, took a road trip to Tennessee. She and my niece were eaten alive by mosquitoes. Looking at the enormous red bites on my tiny niece’s legs, she asked, “Sydney, do you want to make some of our pink cream that stops the itching” Of course my ears perked up at the word “make” and the word “pink”. Sydney’s reaction was a big YES. She had me. What she did was incredibly easy and it worked!
She asked for a spoon, some allergy tablets (you know the pink ones) a spoon and a plate. I thought to myself, “What in the world is she going to make?” As she began mashing the tablets with the spoon, she explained that this was something her mom made for her and her sister when they were kids. Smart lady!
It took me a few tries to get the technique down and not shoot the tablets across the room.
Press the spoon down with your thumb directly over the tablet.
Then rock the spoon back and forth while applying pressure.
As she continued pulverizing them into a pink/white powder. I wondered how something so easy could be effective and why I had not known about this before! Remember mom’s post about Blood, Sweat, Tears and Itching? Yes, we itch a lot here in Tennessee and apparently Texas has the same issues! We really need an anti itch cream that works!
The next step is super easy.
Allison added a tiny amount of water. With the spoon she whipped up a hot pink paste.
Within seconds the home made anti inch cream that works made it’s way to itchy spots on several family members. Awww relief and NO drowsiness! Back outside we went to play corn hole and hit golf balls.
Yeah Allison and her mom!
Several weeks later this concoction was whipped up again for a family member with an extreme case of poison ivy. It worked like magic and saved a trip to the doctor for a cortisone shot. The poison ivy began to dry out and heal.
Mash up Allergy Tablets
Add small amount of water to create paste
