Take the Bite Out of Insects Bites with Repcillin

When an insect bites you it leaves its saliva in your skin. Your body reacts to this saliva by producing histamine. This makes the blood vessels near the bite enlarge and you end up with a pink itchy bump.
Since the bite is so itchy, you can't help but scratch it.
This creates a vicious circle where the irritation causes you to scratch, making it more inflamed and causing it to itch more. There are lots of home remedies such as honey and baking soda paste you can try, but a small application of Repcillin balm will always work wonders. It is effective for a variety of insect bites, including spider bites.
The itching soon stops, the soreness reduces, so you break the itch scratch circle.
It's also safe to use on delicate skin.
