Insect Bites and Stings
Mosquito Bite Relief
When a mosquito bites, your body reacts to the protein in the mosquito’s saliva by producing histamine, causing the swollen area and the itch.
TriCalm can stop the itch from a mosquito bite and help prevent additional irritation and scarring caused by scratching. Because TriCalm is steroid-free, it’s safe to use as often as needed. A cold compress can help reduce the swelling of a mosquito bite.
Bed Bug Bite Relief
Bed bug bites may take anywhere from a few minutes to days after the initial bite to begin itching, and bites can appear on their own or in clusters or lines. The bites may appear as raised bumps or flat welts and can last for between one and two weeks. Itchy bed bug bites have been known to cause people to lose sleep and increase anxiety, especially if they suffer from repeated bites.
TriCalm can stop the itch and prevent further irritation and scarring caused by scratching. It’s fast-acting and can soothe the itch, helping you and your family get much-needed relief and rest. Because TriCalm is steroid-free, it’s safe to use as often as needed.
Other Causes of Insect Irritations
Bee, Wasp and Hornet Stings:
When a bee stings, its stinger enters your body and releases venom, causing pain and sometimes an allergic reaction. Most reactions to stings are limited to localized swelling or welts and are experienced as minor itching or pain, though in some cases a severe allergic reaction could lead to shock. Only a small percentage of people actually develop a severe reaction to insect bites or stings.
Fire Ant Bites and Stings:
When their nests are disturbed, fire ants will bite and sting multiple times, resulting in groups of swollen red welts that blister, itch, burn and sting. These welts can cause discomfort for about a week.
Spider bites are generally mild and can cause some pain, swelling and irritation, but some can be deadly. If you develop severe symptoms after a spider bite, speak to your physician immediately. For mild discomfort caused by spider bites, TriCalm offers steroid-free relief.
