This is the worst anti itch ever. No relief for anyone in my group.

This product was Rhuligel at one time, got sold and passed on to Band-Aid and now Benadryl. Somewhere along the line it became a watery mess that stings and hardly works. You might want to configure your product.

Yesterday I was bitten by mosquitoes at the local golf course. As I went to bed, the bites were not really bothering me. Just to be safe I put on some Benadryl Extra Strength Itch Stopping Gel, 3.5 Ounce. It was like putting gasoline on a fire. All at once the itching became unbearable. I wanted to use some Benadryl from my old 4.0 oz bottle, but I had given it to my daughter. I called Benadryl customer service who told me that they still make the 4.0 oz bottle. A search of the internet told me otherwise. Even Benadryl's own website no longer lists it as a product. The new stuff was an unpleasant surprise, since it not only did not work, but made the mosquito bite worse.

Something Has Changed...And It Isn't Just The Bottle - NO LONGER Works

Review Text: 
I have to agree with all the other recent reviews. Changing the bottle doesn't seem to be the only thing that changed. I used to LOVE the old stuff in the square bottle. Now that it is in the tube, it just does not work as well as the previous formula. *Disappointing*. Please Benadryl....BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA. It worked. This new one...not so much.

I have several mosquito bites on my feet, and they're obviously super itchy. After getting to the point of wanting to claw my feet off while on vacation, I rushed to the local pharmacy to get something. Being familiar with the benadryl brand I grabbed this one. The initial relief is there but after 10 mins it quits working. I would wake-up itching and reapply it just about every hour. I haven't slept and I'm currently rubbing my feet raw because this s#!+ doesn't work. * on another note* I could see where it might be ok for sunburn

This is not the product it was prior to you changing the bottle this year. This doesn’t work near as well. I don’t know what you have changed but you need to change it back. I’ve always depended on this product but now I’ll have to change & find a new product that works. All about the mighty dollar I guess & not about the consumer.

We go on vacation a lot over the summer and I always find myself getting many bug bites. Just recently I went on a trip and we went to an outside museum one of the days and the location was very buggy. I got bug bites all over my legs and arms and they itched terribly. This Benadryl Itch Stopping Gel helped a lot! It made the itching and burning go away very fast and the swelling went down significantly! I have always used this and it has always worked very well for me so I definitely recommend to everyone! Best itching product I’ve every used before!!

I have a terrible allergic reaction to flea and mosquito bites. My skin itches for weeks from these small bites. I was completely miserable before I found this product. It's gentle, fast acting and it eliminates the itchy feeling all together! I can't live in my rural home area without it. Thank you Benadryl!
