Q: What are a Mosquito bite remedy Thailand

I have seen a number or remedies some seem good others plainly strange. It’s like shutting the gate after the horse is gone, it’s about prevention and not being bite by mosquitos in Thailand in the first place. However what I do is get very hot water on a cloth (you can try a hot spoon) and dap it on the bite as long as I can stand within reason, for about 1 minute, you will need to re wet the cloth a few times. This will instantly stop the itch within a 30 secs, as it heats the chemical in the bite and neutralizes it. I have tried pure essential oils before however I could never find the product again.
