Get a mosquito bite and you’ll probably incessantly scratch at it for hours with the intent of making the itching stop.  Too bad scratching only makes it worse.  Eventually you’ll end up with an unsightly blemish and pain, making you wish you had just suffered through the itch.

The Therapik remedies the mosquito bites itch using nothing more than heat.  The durable, rugged wand like device, which runs of a set of batteries, just needs to be pressed to the skin, a button pushed, and presto, no more itch.  Each application, or bite, shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds to remedy, though they recommend applying it for as long as you can bear the heat.  If the pain persists you can use it every 60 seconds so you don’t burn yourself, but worry not as it is FDA approved and it probably isn’t powerful enough to do any long term damage.

At $13 you’ll surely make your money back in a few summers since those anti-itch creams cost at least $5 a pop.  Plus, who wants to apply messy cream when you’ve got something like this, which leaves no mess or residue.
