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.

Best for bug bites

Review Text: 
This is by far the only thing I have found to work on those nasty bug bites my 3 year old gets. She just can't stop itching until we get some of this on her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

It is a good idea to use all summer on bug bites. I think it would help to have it on camping trips and those days when the family is enjoying the night air.

Texas Itchin'

Review Text: 
One thing that I love about being a Texan is all the great BBQ's every weekend, however, what I do not enjoy is pesky mosquitoes biting me! It can tend to get really hot in Texas, combine that with fluctuating moisture and you have some of the most unforgiving mosquitoes on earth (Really! They're savage!!!). This Benadryl stick really helps to soothe my skin, and it keeps me from wanting to scratch myself to death. Love it and always keep it on hand when I'm outside.

A little pricey but well worth the money. I think it works better than hydrocortisone cream!

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.
