The mosquito season is well under way, and after having tasted their unpleasant medicine in recent weeks, you may be looking for a solution to end the itching.
The Bite Helper combines warmth and vibration to significantly reduce the urge to scratch.
Designed from plastic and metal components, it has a single button to turn it on. To use it, place the metal head directly on the site of the puncture as soon as possible. The unit should remain in place for 30 to 45 seconds for increased efficiency.
On the website of the device, it is explained that the itching comes from the fact that the mosquito, when pricking the skin, takes advantage of it to inject saliva that will prevent the blood from coagulating. Our immune system, conscious that it is a foreign body that has no place there, sends antibodies and histamine in reaction, which causes the sensation so characteristic of the bites.
Heat would neutralize the effect of mosquito saliva, making it virtually inert, and vibration would increase the influx of blood to the itchy area.
It is said that the device can be used in case of mosquito bites, black flies, bees, wasps and ants.
