Garlic and Bug Bites

My daughter woke up with a strange and pretty decent size bump on her buttocks, yesterday.  After examining it I came to the conclusion that it had to be a bug bite.  It was itching and irritating her a lot and I wanted to be able to relieve the pain before she went off to school.  Having some things already packed up and wanting a simpler solution for this I went in the kitchen and got a clove of garlic.  I cut the garlic in half and rubbed it over the bump.  She did squeal a bit and said it stung- being sensitive to that- I put a little coconut oil on too.  The bug bite didn't bother her after that and by bedtime it was gone.
