Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. A friend of mine gave me a Bug Bite Thing and I told her I would do an Amazon Review for her. This post and anything social media shares are on me because I really love this thing!
I don’t know about you but I have a make-up pouch full of first aid type things that I never leave home without. Living in Florida there are at least 3 different things that deal with bug bites or stings. They are a scraper to get the stinger out, a cream for itching, and a gel for relieving stinging pain. Now I have just one thing to treat a bug bite in my purse! A Bug Bite Thing. I am not going to go crazy and say “no more creams ever!” but I am saying that we can wait till we get home to get cream if we still need it. Which is a bonus for me – less clutter in my purse! It is also a bonus for the family – less chemicals on them!
I don’t know about you but when I get a bite I obsess over it – I scratch it, I pick at it. It always turns into a much worse problem just by picking at it. But with Bug Bite Thing I don’t. I took it on a family trip to Williamsburg where we walked through National Parks, forests, battle fields, and had picnics on the river. Luckily we only had a few ant bites and a few mosquito attacks, but we didn’t have to deal with them for long!
If you want to find out all the scientific ways that this little tool works check out their website at BugBiteThing.com. They have a video on how it works, testimonials from other people who love it as much as I do, and the story about why she created this Bug Bite Thing in the first place. The simple run down is you can use the side handle to scrape out any stinger that you might have been stung with, then you press the tube down over the bite and create suction for 30 seconds to draw out any bug cooties that are in the bite. Boom your done. Worried that it will leave a hickey mark? Don’t be this is my forearm after using the Bug Bite Thing and I bruise super easy.
How to Get Your Own
I know you want to get one of these for your first aid kit / car, so you can buy them directly from their website for $9.95 each (free shipping in the USA).
