21- Bad advice! You're not supposed to put anything in your cast. I broke my leg a few months ago and made the same mistake, cut the skin and it developed an infection. Skin hidden beneath a cast becomes really sensitive and this means scratching it is more likely to cut the skin, and what with the cast covering the wound, it's untreatable without having to go back to hospital for the cast to be removed, and wound treated. If you don't do this infection often sets in. It's generally a bad idea to put anything in your cast, it could get stuck etc. If I were OP, I'd just put a hairdryer on cold setting and blow it down the cast, hopefully should stop the itching.
Those mosquitos don't give up, do they? I've had them inside my clothes, but a cast? FYL, OP.
Try forgetting about it, then it won't itch. At least in my experience that's how it goes.
Unbend a coat hanger, stick it down your cast and scratch? :) And if that doesn't work then take your mind off of it:D Good luck OP!
Because you don't clean that area, you'll have a whole bunch of dead skin trying to come up which looks like a rash. My friend had a cast once and her arm was itching, do she used a wire hanger. When she took off her cast, her arm looks red, blotchy, and disgusting.
I kept trying to tap this FML but I kept going on to the one below!! :)
How? I thought if you get bit and don't touch it, it won't itch...
You're def not entirely wrong, Psych. but I hope you don't mind me enlightening you anyway :) The mosquito injects a substance into our skin to numb it, so we don't feel them sucking our blood. When that wears off, it starts to itch because our body is rejecting it. (basically a low-grade allergic reaction) Yeah, I research my enemies... Those little fuckers love me :[
The mosquito sticks it's nose/mouth in your skin, then she injects it's saliva so you don't feel her, but usually people feel the prick of her nose or see her, and then shoo her away/ slap her, so she doesn't get the chance to take her saliva out. Which is what causes the itch. The reason I keep saying her is because all mosquitos that suck blood are female, the males do not suck blood they are herbivores.
I bet you'd rather break your arm again than deal with that mosquito bite... That is awful!
