It's that time of the year where, if you live in the south, mosquito's are starting to bite.  If you're outdoors like most other people this summer you're going to come across ants, wasps, and a whole plethora of insects waiting to make you itch!  Fortunately for you, I have come across a little resource that can relieve your itching and redness.  The good news is you probably already have it in your medicine cabinet.

Vick's Vapo Rub

Yep, Vapo Rub works similiarly to toothpase in that they both contain menthol.  Menthol is a local anesthetic which will relieve your pain, but unlike pasty white toothpase - you dont look stupid with it rubbed into your skin!

Try it out for yourself, let us know if it works!
