What is After Bite Classic?

After Bite Classic is a handy treatment pen which helps to soothe itching and irritation caused by insect bites and stings. It’s ideal for bites and stings from mosquitos, horse flies, bees, wasps, jellyfish, and irritation caused by nettle rash. If you’re looking for a quick and easy insect bite treatment that you can take with you on the go, After Bite could be the perfect product for you.


What happens when you get an insect bite or sting?

When you’re bitten or stung by an insect, you’ll usually experience a small red, swollen lump in the affected area. This can be very itchy or irritating, but you should avoid itching the area as much as possible. The lump will usually clear up within a few days, but can last a little longer if you experience a mild allergic reaction.


How will After Bite Classic help to soothe bites or stings?

After Bite Classic relieves the itching and irritation you experience when you’ve had an insect bite or sting. This helps to keep you from itching the area, which can damage the skin further, helping your skin to heal naturally.


How to use this product

Shake well before use. Remove the cap and use the applicator provided to apply a thin layer of After Bite Classic. Apply in circular motions over the affected area and let dry. Do not cover with a bandage or clothing until the area is dry. For best results, apply as soon as possible after receiving a bite or sting. If you still experience itching or irritation, repeat the treatment as needed. Make sure to replace the cap onto the pen after every application.

After Bite Classic is not suitable for use in children under the age of 3. Do not use this product if you are allergic to ammonia or any of the other listed ingredients. For external use only, avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, or other sensitive areas.
