Apply Therapik for temporary relief from the pain and itching caused by insect stings and bites. Therapik provides relief in 20 to 30 seconds by increasing localized blood flow to the affected area. Venom from a wide range of insects is thermolabile, or neutralized by heat. Temperatures of 50° to 60°C at the skin's surface (about as hot as you can handle) generate the necessary heat to act on the venom under the skin.
- Recommended to treat stings from hornets, bees, flies, mosquitos, and blackflies.
- Requires a 9-volt battery (sold separately).
