Benadryl has been around in various forms for many years. There is one form I have used for quite some time and it seems to work pretty darned well. This is Bendryl Itch Stopping Cream. It comes in a one ounce tube.
The cream can be used on various ailments, from insect bites, minor burns, sunburn, minor skin irritations, poison ivy and and a assortment of other problems.
The cream is white and milky. I have used this on insect bites and poison ivy/oak with pretty good results. It doesn't offer immediate stoppage of the itching but it tends to make you forget that it is there.
Instructions are quite easy as well. Adults 12 and old just apply this cream to the problem area not more than three or four times a day. Under twelve please see a doctor.
I keep one of these in my first aid kits and they have been worth their weight in gold. So if you need a anti itch creme for your kits please check out Benadryl Itch Stopping Creme, you won'tbe dissapointed!
