READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

This absolutely works on mosquito bites!!! Without a doubt, banana peel takes the itch right out AND dries them up quickly. I have tried everything and this is the only remedy that works for me. I would imagine banana peel would work great on poison ivy too, though I don't want to learn the hard way.
