We experienced a lot of mosquito bites in Costa Rica. In fact, going outside at dusk unprotected, even for a few minutes, was guaranteed to result in several painful bites. Sadly, we hadn’t brought along any of the effective Picardin based insect repellents that we now trust. The Therapik bite reliever worked amazingly well for us!
We had previously learned that using a hot hair dryer to heat up the red bump from mosquito bites stopped most of the itching. On some evenings when we forgot to coat ourselves with repellent we were really sorry, but the hair dryer trick worked well to allow us to sleep.
This Therapik Sting Reliever uses the same principle and works even better than a hair dryer. Unlike a hair dryer, it doesn’t also heat up a large part of your body when you use it-just the bite area-which is very nice when temperatures are already too hot!
It is also much easier to pack than a hair dryer, doesn’t need to be plugged in, and can be carried in a purse or pack so you have it handy whenever you need it. We always pack it along on our hikes and when we go to a lake or to the shore.
Therapik® is based on a very simple, scientifically proven principle. Most insect venom is thermolabile (sensitive to heat). Therapik’s patented technology delivers heat in the specific temperature range necessary to neutralize the venom from over 20,000 different species of insects and sea creatures.
The Therapik Mosquito Bite Reliever provides almost instant relief from the pain and itch experienced from our mosquito bites. It also promises to work for bee stings, fire ants, jellyfish stings, and bites from lots of other species of insects as well.
