  • Question
    Can banana peel ease itchy skin?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes. You can use a banana peel to relieve itching from poison ivy, mosquito bites, and more. If you get bitten by a mosquito or stumble into a bit of poison ivy, oak, sumac, etc., rubbing a banana peel on the affected area can moisturize and neutralize some of the itching. Note that it will just alleviate some of the itching—it won't solve the root problem, like the oils that poison plants leave on your skin. It'll do great as a first step, but if you really want to knock out that rash, you should head to the store and grab some poison ivy soap (and save your banana peels for shoe shining and splinter removal instead).
    Thanks!
