Bite And Sting Relief

The Therapik from MorePower2U is a handheld device designed to provide relief from the pain and itching caused by bug bites and stings.The Therapik from MorePower2U is a small, portable handheld device designed to provide relief from the pain and itching caused by bug bites and stings.

Most insect venom is sensitive to heat, and Therapik’s patented technology delivers heat in the precise temperature range to deactivate the venom from more than 20,000 different types of insects and sea creatures. As the heat neutralizes the venom and increases blood flow to the affected area, swelling, itching, and pain are reduced. One 20- to 30-second application typically stops the itch and pain, but the device can be used as often as necessary until relief is obtained. It is not intended for spider or snake bites.

The Therapik has a retail price of $12.95.
