Image for AfterBite for those nasty, itchy bug bites

While shopping at Walmart, my husband picked up some AfterBite Itch Eraser for some bug bites he had that were really bothering him. I've tried it myself and have mixed feelings about it.

AfterBite comes in a tube and is just rubbed into the affected area. It has a tip to it that contains the liquid to stop itching, and it is meant to bring instant relief for a number of insect bites, including mosquitoes, fleas, flies, ticks, chiggers and other insects. It can also be used for poison oak, ivy and sumac. The liquid is somewhat runny when applied and needs to be rubbed into the skin. I have not found it to be greasy.

I have used this product a number of times already when I had a nasty itch due to a bug bite, and I must say that I have not really experienced a great deal of relief with it. My husband tells me it has really helped him. I do not seem to be having the same experience with it. AfterBite claims to be a trusted formula that pharmacists recommend, and I know it works for some people. My husband is one of them. But I cannot say that I am impressed with this product. I have not had very good results.

One tube holds 0.5 fl. oz. of liquid, and the active ingredient is ammonia in 3.5%. Inactive ingredients include alcohol ethoxylate, dimethicone, mineral oil and purified water.

This is a product that you would probably have to try in order to see if it will work for you. I wish I could say that I was happy with my results, but I personally am not impressed with its performance. I have read reviews on this product, and mostly everyone had something positive to say about it. I guess it must be me, because I have not noticed a reduction in my itching.
