you guys have no guts!!! :evil:
extra strength Vagisil.
Active Ingredients: Contains: Benzocaine USP (20% - External analgesic), Resorcinol (3% - External analgesic)
that's more Benzocaine than you get in most anti-itch meds and at a much cheaper price.
for the immediate treatment, i keep liquid Benadryl at hand and take a swig when i get stung. it's child strength, so you don't have to get to wound up about dose when you are in the field.
got great advice at Bud3 last year. i have giant swelling when i get stung and don't want to be drinking Benadryl if i'm driving. now i take Loratadine before i go on a call or if i am really tearing into my own hives. it helps a lot if i get stung, doesn't make me loopy, and i can take Benadryl later.
