An insect bite or sting can produce pain, heat or itching, redness and swelling.
This is because when your skin is attacked it releases chemicals from cells – mainly histamine which:
Stimulate nerve endings – causing pain
Increase blood flow to the damaged area – causing redness; and
Alter the tissue fluid balance to dilute and limit the effects of toxins introduced – causing swelling.
Sensitive individuals have a hypersensitivity reaction which produces a much more severe version of these symptoms.
Anthisan Bite & Sting Cream is specifically formulated to prevent histamine from acting on the tissues and causing symptoms.
So whether you’re planning a holiday abroad, or just want to be ready for your next encounter with an insect or nettle, Anthisan Bite & Sting Cream is a small, convenient, tube of soothing cream that can be applied directly to the site of the insect bite, insect sting or stinging nettle rash to relieve the irritation.
