The Original Bite Away Natural Bite Healer. Biteaway is a quick, natural remedy for an annoying problem - Insect bites. It uses concentrated heat (no electricity) on a bite or sting to decompose the insects proteins and to suppress the body's allergic reaction which causes pain, itching and swelling. Bite away works instantly - within seconds - and can still be used even hours after the bite or sting occurred. It not only treats bites of mosquitoes but also bites and stings of bees, wasps, sand flies, horseflies, gnats and fleas alike. It is safe and easy to use for both children and adults.

Note: Do not apply Biteaway on mucous membranes, open wounds or the eyes.
Biteaway uses the principle of concentrated heat to relieve insect bites immediately once they occur or even hours afterwards. The device contains a single-chip thermostat on its heating module, which is heated to approximately 50 degrees Celcius, the temperature at which insect protein molecules become decomposed. By placing the device on the specific area of a bite or sting, Biteaway helps remove the protein from the skin, thus relieving the bite or sting.
The controlled temperature delivered by Biteaway's heating module, in which the temperature reached is between 49-53 degrees, for a specific amount of time), works to immediately alleviate the bite or sting, usually within about three seconds!
When applied immediately after a bite or sting, Biteaway actually prevents the bite from causing itching or swelling when applied sometime after a bite, or even after several hours, Biteaway will still help minimize the itching and swelling of the bite, and will cause it to eventually disappear. Biteaway works entirely without chemical substances.
Biteaway should be applied to a bite or sting immediately after it occurs. If you do not have it handy after you are bitten or stung, you can still use the device once you do have access to it.
Whether you use it immediately or after several hours, follow these steps:
Place the device's heating surface directly on the bite or sting.
Press one of the two starting keys* and wait for the device to reach the appropriate temperature.**
During the appropriate treatment time, keep the heating surface slightly pressed on the bite.
Once the right temperature is reached, there will be an acoustic signal lasting about half a second, and a green diode will show the range of temperature reached.
When you see this temperature displayed, remove the device from the bite or sting.
* Note: The right key is for adults (treatment time is approximately five seconds), the left key is for children or adults with sensitive skin (treatment time is approximately three seconds).
** Note: After turning on one of the two start buttons, the pre-heating phase begins.When the appropriate temperature has been reached (in less than 10 seconds), the control will determine the appropriate range of temperature, depending on the time interval chosen (either of the two start buttons).If the temperature is not reached within 10 seconds, the low battery alert will show on the digital display, indicated by a flashing and three half-second acoustic signals.In this case, the batteries should be replaced.
Biteaway works with a distribution voltage ranging between 2.3 to 3.6 V. The device can thus be used with AA batteries or with accumulators in AA format.
Keep out of reach of Children. Do not use on mucus membranes, eyes or open wounds.
