It’s a product that isn’t just for use in warm weather months for mosquito bites. Therapik, a small, portable hand-held device confirmed by the FDA to deliver bug bite relief is proving to be a welcome weapon against pain and itching from insect bites and stings. Therapik has been shown to be an effective treatment for stings and bites from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, hornets, black flies, ants, fleas, ticks, chiggers and even jellyfish and stinging nettle. This unique treatment device soothes pain and itching and is safe for both adults and children.
Therapik’s design is based on a simple, scientifically proven principle. Most insect venom is thermolabile, or sensitive to heat. Therapik‚s patented technology delivers heat in the precise temperature range necessary to deactivate the venom from over 20,000 different species of insects and sea creatures. As the heat neutralizes the venom and increases blood flow to the affected area, there is a marked reduction in swelling, redness, pain and itching. Therapik can be reapplied as often as necessary until sufficient bug bite relief is obtained. Most Therapik users find that one 20- to 30-second application is enough to stop the itch and pain permanently.
Small, lightweight and battery-powered, Therapik sells for $12.95 and is available at: http://www.therapik.com
