Grasp the nettle and get some first aid for bites and stings

Whether you are taking in a music festival or simply taking out the weeds this summer, you will need some first aid for insect bites and stings from wasps and nettles.

Anthistan is a convenient first aid cream for all sorts of bites and stings. This cream is a highly effective treatment for relieving the pain, itching, and inflammation caused by insect bites, stings and nettle rash.

It is estimated that there are about 12,000 different types of insects in Ireland and that more than half a million people experience an insect sting or bite each year. Common causes of insect bites and stings in Ireland include wasps, bees, mosquitoes, and midges.

Anthisan cream contains two per cent w/w mepyramine maleate, an anti-histamine which provides triple action relief from insect bites, stings and nettle rash by relieving pain, soothing itching, and reducing inflammation.

Anthisan cream helps to prevent the action of histamine, naturally produced by the body as part of its defence mechanism when bitten or stung. An increase in histamine can cause a range of allergic symptoms such as inflammation of the skin, redness, hives, bumps, swelling, or an itchy rash.

To use Anthisan cream, simply apply gently to the affected area two to three times a day for up to three days. Before use it is important to read the enclosed leaflet and ask your pharmacist if you need any further information.
