Insect Sting Relief
In warmer months and in certain locations insects are unavoidable. Insect repellents can ward off mosquitoes, ticks, blackflies, chiggers, sandflies, and fleas, and keep you from getting bitten. We also have wipes to reduce pain from and clean stings.
We provide Natrapel brand insect repellent. This spray is DEET free and is virtually non-toxic. The active ingredient, Picaridin, does not cause skin irritation and is only hazardous when large quantities are injected or applied to the eyes. We also provide DEET based insect repellent wipes. These are easy to apply and are individually wrapped for convenience. When used as directed, these wipes should not cause any skin irritation.
What is DEET?
Deet is a chemical created in the 1940s to mask a person's smell so mosquitos and ticks are less likely to find and bite you. DEET is the active ingredient in many insect repellents.
Sting and Bite Wipes
We provide Sting-x and Safetec brand sting relief wipes. Sting-x wipes use 6% Benzocaine as the active ingredient. Benzocaine is used as a topical analgesic to reduce swelling and irritation from stings. The Safetec wipes use 50% Ethyl Alcohol and 2% Lidocaine HCL to help disinfect and reduce irritation from stings.
