I had been reading a lot about urine therapy recently.. I was still struggling with the ick factor, but was so intrigued by all the things that it could supposedly help.
When I woke up this morning I felt the need to scratch my back. When I did, I realized their was a raised lump in the area that was itchy. I was immediately discouraged, as I had experienced this numerous times.
Upon inspection, there was a welt about the size of a dime and red skin surrounding the welt for about an inch in every direction. It was another mystery bite. I've never been certain of the source of these bites. This one seemed like it could have been from a mosquito.
In the past when I have found similar bites on me, it would mean several days of fairly annoying itching, before it would fully resolve. I had tried essential oils and clay packs on the bites in the past. Sometimes I would get temporary relief. Sometimes it seemed that the itching would come back and be as bad or worse than before the treatment.
This morning I decided to try urine therapy to see if it would actually work. I caught my first morning urine and put 10 drops under my tongue. The itching seemed to stop within seconds. I used some additional urine to massage over the area of the bite. I probably could have stopped there, but I really wanted to be sure this would continue to work. I repeated the process several times and then just continued the massage with urine until the red area around the welt faded away.
The welt is still visible, but I have had zero itching and it has now been eight hours since I discovered the bite and applied the therapy. I have never had such immediate and long-lasting relief from one of these mystery bites.
People may think this is too icky to try, but it worked so well for me. I would definitely do it again without hesitation.
I hope this helps someone else.
