Warm weather is here and so are the bugs. If you forget to apply insect repellant and get an itchy welt, Ken Haller, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics at Saint Louis University School of Medicine, has a simple solution to end your suffering: Dab a bit of roll-on antiperspirant directly on the bug bite.

"The aluminum salts in the antiperspirant help the body to reabsorb the fluid in the bug bite," Haller says. "The swelling goes down and the itching stops."
