We have a lot of plants, trees and bushes in our yard, so I often get bitten by mosquitoes and spiders. The spider bites are the worst and can take a while to go away. I tried Cortaid, After Bite and even Ivarest that is for poison ivy. Nothing gave me the kind of relief I get from Extra Strength Benadryl. It stops the itch almost immediately and lasts for hours! Sometimes it only takes one application and it makes the bites go away much faster. I LOVE it!

This cream is the only one that is effective enough to work on my swelling bug bites. I have tried countless other brands and ingredients and none have come close to the speed at which Benadryl can stop the burning and itching. Thank you!

Effective at stopping itch and reducing oozing associated with urushiol exposure (poison oak / sumac / ivy / etc.) However - try a test patch on an unaffected part of your skin first (e.g. stomach.) Turns out that some of the red I always get from poison oak is actually a reaction to the benadryl I use! Who knew?

We're glad to hear that the cream is helping with those itchy reactions, but we definitely wouldn't expect it to cause another reaction! Give us a call at 1-877-717-2824 so we can learn more about what happened. You can reach us anytime between 9AM and 5:30PM ET Monday through Friday. We look forward to chatting with you!

Beware of overdose

Review Text: 
Benadryl is absorbed systemically. In a one ounce tube of extra strength is the equivalent of 24 25mg tabs. Use it for more than a few skeeter bites and expect to sleep for a couple days.

He went fishing without me and forgot sunscreen resulting in a lobster colored sunburn. I couldn't touch him without him cussing me out. So to the store we went and found this product. He felt instant relief and now I can sit next to him. Thank you benadryl.
