The Best SOLUTION after Insects Strike!

So you've armed yourself with the best insect repellent but seems like you missed a spot or took too long to re-apply your insect repellent because you see and feel the tell-tale signs that you've been bitten or stung by some insect - an annoying, itching insect bump has appeared!

An itching insect bite or sting is really irritating. Not to mention the unsightly sore that eventually develops if you repeatedly scratch the bump for relief and the skin breaks.

I really love my INSTANT solution - the AfterBite Itch Eraser! On those rare occasions that a mosquito or other biting or stinging insect has managed to penetrate my insect repellent armour, I have used AfterBite Itch Eraser with much satisfaction.

Other Great Facts about AfterBite Itch Eraser!

Besides the No. 1 feature of the AfterBite Itch Eraser - its effectiveness in bringing instant relief from insect bites and stings - there are 4 other things that I love about it:

  • 1. There is a really neat applicator, so my hands don't have to mix any greasy creams or pungent ointments.I just have to uncover the tube and apply it directly to the bite or sting.
  • 2. It is housed in a pen-like container that looks like a highlighting marker and which facilitates easy carry around with a clip, like those on pens, so you can clip it on to your shirt pocket or the waistband of your skirt, pants or sarong (whether you're outdoors at home, hiking, or at the beach).
  • 3. It has a secure but easily manageable cap that is easy to unscrew and recap, so it never dries out or leaks out.
  • 4. It is weightless; it weighs about as much as a marker.

It works well for various insect bites and stings, such as black flies, fleas, chiggers, horse flies and 'no-see-ums' (for us in the Caribbean those no-see-ums are what we call 'sand flies'; they are literally the size of one of your pores and you know how small that is). I think I hate those sand flies more than mosquitoes because at least you can see and hear the mosquitoes but these sand flies (no-see-ums) you just feel the bites and then the itching bumps appear leaving you feeling that you will scratch yourself to death.

One other important thing! I really hate to hear people whining that a product is no good when they haven't used it correctly in the first place.

So don't scratch yourself to death, apply the AfterBite Itch Eraser and then complain that the product doesn't work. The important thing is to avoid breaking the skin so that the bite or sting doesn't become infected and break into a skin sore.

Make the AfterBite Itch Eraser an essential addition to your first aid kit this summer, especially if you have children in your charge.

Here are Some Other AfterBite Product Solutions

Having children enjoy the outdoors is an important activity for their overall development, especially in this day and age when most children, unless told to do otherwise remain glued to the TV.

Once you get them outside, you don’t want them to hate outside. So have this “No sting cream formula with Baking Soda, Tea Tree oil, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E” available to soothe any stings or bites they might get even after you have protected them with insect repellent.

I really love the mix of natural ingredients in this children’s formula which is gentle on their young and tender skin.

      I agree with you, FreshStart7 - AfterBite is my number one "go-to" remedy for bug bites. We've been using it for years. Florida, like the Caribbean, has its share of those bad-behavior-bugs! I especially liked hearing about the new formula with baking soda. I had a recent romp with fire ants (and they won!), and the only relief I could get was with a homemade baking soda/water paste. Now, I will be purchasing the new AfterBite with this added "natural" ingredient. Thanks for the review!
