And they do work to ;] , but that's not the point.

That is called in medicine as a Tactile stimulation (based on the Pain-Gating Theory by Melzac and Wall), and it does work for some. My grandmother does that too when she was alive and I would have those "owwies".

My great grandma said that if you get a mosquito bite rub some of your own spit on it (it kinda works too...it heals faster that way)
