Bug bites are a common thing that children must contend with, especially during the summer. While most of the time, they are not life threatening, bug bites can be extremely itchy causing the child to want to scratch them. However, this could break the skin, which could open the child up to an infection.

When your child has a bug bite, there are many things that you can do to help relieve this itching. For starters, a cold compress is something that can help soothe an itch. You can also apply a moisturizer to the skin in order to help keep it from itching. There are specific options available for bug bites.

Use mild soap that will not further irritate the skin. You can also apply a baking soda and water mixture to the bite to help fight itching.

Always encourage your child to avoid scratching the bite. If you find your child scratching at it, wash the bite immediately and apply something to the area that will help relieve the itch quickly. You can also put a bandage over the bite to help discourage itching as well.

Be careful when and how you use it

I bought into the hype and broke down and tried this product. After all, how can you resist something that claims that the fat is literally taken out of some of the food that you eat! I must say, though, pay attention to the directions on the package. I used it for a few days with none of the negative effects that many people experience. But during those times I ate fairly healthy meals and nothing too fatty. Then I went out with friends and didn't think about the fact I had taken these pills. I ate chicken wings, blue cheese and french fries. And spent most of the night and a good portion of the next day with several occasions of racing to the bathroom because of digestive issues. I suppose it shows that it does remove "stuff" from your diet because I sometimes have issues going at all and with using this product I went several times a day. But is it worth the risk? Besides, I have no idea if taking the pill was making a difference in my weight loss or if I was having success because I was being more careful in my food choices leading to lower calorie intake.

Weight Loss through Fear of Embarrassment

Was excited to try Alli, heard such great things. Did not see anything for the first couple days I took this. Then came the HORRIBLE side effects. Oily, greasy residue in your underwear and the toilet, and the smell. Oh my gosh. It was awful. Talk about eating healthy - for fear of what this will do to you. Didn't even finish the first bottle it was so terrible.
