Temporarily relieves pain & itching with:
• insect bites • minor burns • sunburns
• minor skin irritations • minor cuts • scrapes
• rashes dues to poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac
• dries the oozing and weeping of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac
Sunburns often happen when a person is over exposed to UV Radiation. When the skin is burned, your body responds immediately by increasing blood flow to the area. This makes the skin look red and feel warm to the touch. Your body also releases histamine, which triggers the inflammatory response behind the pain and warmth.
Insect Bite and Sting Relief
When we get bit by an insect, most of the time they inject saliva into our skin. The proteins in the saliva will usually trigger a mild immune system reaction, causing our body to release histamines that result in a itching red bump. Diphenhydramine HCl, is an anti-histamine, that helps sooth the skin by reducing the itchiness and swelling.
Poison Oak, Samac, and Ivy Relief
When you come in contact with a poisonous plant, you can develop a rash a few hours or days after coming in contact. The rash is caused by an allergic reaction to an oily resin called urushiol. This oil is in the leaves, stems and roots of poison ivy, poison oak and poison sumac. Using Zinc Acetate will help by drying the the oozing and weeping blisters.
