When you are out in nature, there are unfortunately also insects that may sting you. The bite away is an electronic device for chemical-free external treatment for insect bites/stings such as mosquitoes, wasp, and bees. Thanks to it, a minor insect bite or irritant does not need to turn into an ongoing issue. It is simple to use: by pressing one of the two buttons just once (3 – 5 seconds) a temperature of around 124°F is reached and maintained for the selected time, providing relief from itching and swelling within seconds.
