I woke up to find something had bitten my hand in the night. It was soooo itchy and dark red. Benadryl to the rescue. It works well! But, it’s gotten rather expensive for a smaller tube than I remember.

This is my favorite product for mosquito bites, especially those itchy bites. I find the name brand to be a bit expensive though. I would love a smaller size or two tubes of .5 oz or .25 oz each so I could carry them easily in my purse.

i got this because i had some itchy bug bites but when it got very itchy i would apply this cream but it made the bug bites worse, the area i applied to started to hurt and burn so much that i was in pain for a good 45 mins. i will be returning it to the store for a refund and this product does not work on bug bites or mosquito bites.

I am the worst when breaking out from a bite. This is the only stuff I can use and find relief. I keep one with me at all times. This is the type I prefer compared to the gel.

I got a case of poison ivy really bad by working in the yard this week. Was awakened 2 consecutive nights (in the middle of the night!) itching so bad I couldn't stand it. Had been using hand sanitizer and calamine lotion which helped some. Remembered I had this product in the drawer and applied it generously. Instant relief! I will be buying buckets of this medication. Thank you so much.

This Product Really Works And It Works Safely

5 out of 5 stars
Robert4321 - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
The Benadryl cream or their gel product is the most effective treatment I have found for quickly and conveniently treating insect bites and skin inflammation from plant allergies. Relief is near instantaneous, long lasting as in many hours, and with minimal mess. And it takes just the slightest amount for good effect, making the tube last a very long time. I prefer using this product over a corticosteroid, it's much safer.

I carry this along in my tote bag just in case a situation pops up where I need it. It’s definitely a must have. I’ve used it on pretty severe mosquito bites and it helps a lot with the itching. I can’t say that the swelling goes down immediately but it definitely provides instant relief.

This stuff is so great! My 2yr got poison oak all over her little face and this was THE only thing that stopped the itch and helped dry it out so it could heal without spreading more. I will be keeping a tube on hand at all times from here on out.

I'm only putting this cause I'm bored and itchy. Idk about the other stuff but, this doesn't really work for mosquito bites it gives a burning sensation that keeps reactivating the bite to itch again.
