Insect Bites using Onions

Who would know that your favorite onion for salad and sandwiches can be use to relieve the itchiness causes by insect bites like mosquitoes and other bugs. I experience some mosquito bites during night and when we go on a mountain climbing. I cannot resist to scratch the insect bites then sometimes causes rashes. I read some remedies that helps overcoming insect bites itchiness. And this is by using an onion.

Relieve the itch from bug bites with an onion. The sulfur in onions neutralizes the
chemicals that cause the itch. Simply slice a yellow onion in half and
rub one of the cut sides on the bite. The itching should stop immediately. Refrigerate the
onion in a sealed container to use again if the itching resumes. Make a fresh slice before
reapplying it.

So remember to keep some fresh onion at home so if you experience insect bites use an onion.
