Have you ever tried putting an X-mark with your fingernails on a mosquito bite? Be honest! Hahaha!
We automatically scratch our skin when we feel that killer itchiness…even if we didn’t like to! Relate? I know! Scratching gives us a temporary relief from it.
How does scratching temporarily relieves an itch?
▶ Scratching blocks nerve cells from sending information to the brain that a certain part of our body/skin feels itchy.
▶Oatmeal bath. Oatmeals contains natural chemicals that eases inflammation/itchiness.
▶Keep yourself cool. Heat and sweat makes that itchy part MORE itchy. Put a cold compress or take a cool bath.
💡 Did you know…
It is not advisable to scratch itchy skin. That instant and temporary relief actually causes the itchiness to worsen and aggravate inflamed skin.
