I get bites that welt up from Aedes Mosquitoes and nothing works better than Benedryl that works to counteract the bites. However, in order for me to get the product to be dispensed, I’d have to use my nails and push on the sponge tip quickly which causes more product than I need to flow out. So, I would go through a stick in a week. Pressing firmly against the skin or affected area doesn’t work. Especially , where the skin is fleshy. The ingredients work, but just need a new way to deliver them.

I really want to love this product but can't because it fails at it's intended purpose which is to easily disperse medicine through a sponge tip. In order to get any medicine to flow one must press firmly ( I use my finger nail) while holding the pen sponge side down. It isn't that bad but it definitely not the process that that it appears to be. Just a suggestion - maybe a roller ball would be more user friendly.

The medicine work well enough, but the applicator has been lousy for me. There has to be enough pressure applied to compress the sponge tip to load it with liquid. This works fine on firm areas over bone, but it's practically useless on soft, fleshy areas like thighs. It also doesn't apply much with each compression. We'll stick with AfterBite.

I tried and tried to get this stick to work and nothing comes out. All it does is make your leg sore from pushing th stick onto your leg. Will go back to cream no more stick.

Very disappointed in the itch relief stick! Mainly because it would not work, no liquid would disburse! I was really looking forward to the convenience, another $3.49 down the drain.

I haven't been able to find this product for a while, and was so happy to see it at my local Stop & Shop. I keep one with me in my purse, and have one in my guest bathroom. It works IMMEDIATELY - we get a lot of bugs in rural Massachusetts; this is instant relief.

Our daughter has an allergy to Mosquito bites and every time she gets bitten they turn in to large hives, which are extremely itchy and painful. Using the Benadryl Stick helps provide immediate relief from the itching and helps the hives go down much quicker. Seriously this a life saver!
