It can be a frustrating night when you spend it scratching the itch from mosquito bites. Anti-itch creams are swell but not always readily available. Here’s a tip from a Reddit user: use a hot spoon.

firu86 suggests using a hot spoon to treat mosquito bites.

Mosquito bite? Press a hot spoon (e.g. the one you stirred your coffee with) onto the spot. The heat will destroy the protein that caused the reaction and the itching will stop.

Okay, color me impressed.

The comment thread also has a helpful tip when it comes to allergies from cats, pollen, etc.:

From switchbadger “This is actually true for most allergic reactions. You are producing a hyper-histamine response to a foreign protein that can be denatured with heat. I use this same trick when my eyes get itchy from cat hair or pollen, except with a hot face cloth instead of a spoon.”

But who cares about science, pass the cutlery. Heat + Spoon = Relief. I will keep a spoon in my camp pack from now on. Take that skeeter bite.
