The Bite Away is a patented medical device which was developed for the external treatment of insect bites and stings.
The Bite Away insect healer treats mosquitoes bites, sand flies bites, bees sting, wasp sting, blue bottle jellyfish sting, horseflies bites, flea bites, bed bugs bites and mites/chigger bites and stinging nettle. The Bite Away is designed to be effective on any bite/sting that has a histamine reaction.
The Bite Away is based on a purely natural effect of concentrated heat.
Through a German invented integrated microchip the bite away® treats the bites by heating to a temperature of between 49°C to 51°C for 3 to 6 seconds. This thermostat controlled device denatures or decomposes the insect toxins/protein thus preventing the body’s histamine reaction.
When applied immediately after sting the bite away® prevents or minimises the itching so that it becomes insignificant and prevents any subsequent swelling. When applied later, even after hours, the itching will be minimised immediately, as well or will disappear. The swelling will go down more quickly.
