    I had a severe itching problem and I applied the medication at night to be able to sleep. The itching abated for a short time but when I woke the area where I applied it was severely swollen and I had to stop its use immediately. It seems I had an alergic reaction. Now I still have the itching AND severe swelling to deal with as well. My doctor put me on steriods (Prednisone) to reduce the swellin ... Show Full Comment

    I find myself reapplying the stick to my bites (gnats I think) every hour or two, sometimes waking up in the middle of the night to reapply. It is easy to dab on the elbows and forearms, but you have to press hard to get the liquid to come out which can get frustrating if you've been bitten in a soft area. I'll just try a cream next time.

    I am 30 years old and have been bit by mosquitos very bad all of my life. The only thing that has worked to stop the itching is benadryl's itch relief stick. The only problem is Benadryl itch relief stick is not carried in any store in my area. Now the only way to find it is online. Awesome product!!!!! Just having trouble finding it.

    Worked pretty well to stop mosquito bites from itching. I had over 25 bites and this provided great relief. Only issue I found is it's hard to apply in areas that you can't reach well (like on your back).

    These sticks are great and very effective. My kids are allergic to mosquito bites and this it the only thing that works. Very portable.
