Yes, the weather is warmer and the sun is out more. Unfortunately, that also means it’s bug bite season. While there are, of course, bug sprays and other deterrents, you can’t avoid them all. But if you do get bitten, there’s a solution to all that itching.

It turns out that heat can help relieve the itch of bug bites, and there’s a handy, portable tool that does just that.

The Bite Away offers relief from insect bites and stings (particularly biting mosquitoes and gnats) by applying heat to a targeted area. The little pen-shaped tool features a ceramic head that heats up to 124 degrees Fahrenheit and applies for 3-5 seconds. While those seconds won’t be the most comfortable moments of your life, they’ll relieve the itch for several hours, and isn’t it worth it?

Bite Away is appropriate for all ages (just be sure to be gentle with young children, as it does have a bit of a sting to it) and is FDA-approved. Plus, unlike traditional treatments like creams, it’s non-messy and has no medicinal smell. It really is just heat.

So how does it work? According to Bite Away, an insect bite triggers an immune reaction and our bodies produce histamine which binds to nerve cells and can cause itching. Bite Away works by using heat as a “counter-irritant” that prevents the itch signal from traveling to your brain. The pen also works through heat stroke which could slow the release of histamine and other inflammatory responses that cause itching.

Whether you plan on camping with the family, lounging by the lake, or generally being outdoors during bug season, Bite Away could help you with an almost unavoidable itch.
