Frequently Asked Questions.

Bite Away is an electronic device for the symptomatic treatment of itching, pain, and swelling caused by insect stings and bites. It works solely through concentrated heat applied to a small, limited area of skin, and the treatment is completely free from chemicals. This localized pulse of heat can trigger a response from the body that reduces itching and pain and subsequently causes any swelling to go down.
Place the ceramic contact surface of Bite Away onto the sting or bite. After pressing one of the two buttons only once (3 seconds for the initial treatment and for more sensitive skin / 5 seconds for a regular application) Bite Away will reach a temperature of around 124°F and maintain that temperature for the selected amount of time. If symptoms do not disappear completely, the application can be repeated. Be sure to leave a treatment interval of at least 2 minutes between each application. Do not exceed a maximum number of 5 applications per hour on the same insect sting or bite.
Quick treatment is best! If the device is applied immediately after the sting/bite, symptoms can usually be prevented altogether. Using the device in the short-term after contact with a bug can help symptoms fade away more quickly. Continue to use Bite Away until symptoms have subsided.
Bite Away is suitable for expectant mothers, children over 2 years old (self-application from 12 years and up), and those with sensitive skin. When using on children, please note that a child’s skin is more sensitive than that of an adult. Prior to treatment, please inform your child that Bite Away will create heat that might have a slight sting for a brief moment. View our tips for using Bite Away with children.
No. Bite Away treats the symptoms caused by insect bites or stings, not the bite or sting itself.
No. Bite Away is not intended to be used in the event of severe hypersensitivity reactions after an insect sting or bite (anaphylactic reaction). Bite Away is not a replacement for emergency treatment. You should immediately call a doctor at the first signs of any such reaction (e.g. increased itching, reddening, swelling or formation of a welt, dizziness, nausea, difficulties breathing, hypotension or hypertension).
Bite Away is suitable to use by those with skin allergies to treat the symptoms caused by insect bites or stings, but it does not directly relieve or cure allergic reactions or allergy symptoms. Some skin allergies are accompanied by an increased sensitivity to some stimuli. People with known skin allergies should therefore try Bite Away carefully or should talk to their doctor before using it. For special contraindications please read the instructions for use.
Your bite away® comes with 2 AA LR6 1.5V batteries pre-installed. These will work for up to 300 applications and can be replaced with AA LR6 Alkaline batteries, when needed. When wanting to change the batteries, please remove the battery cap. Your Bite Away will let you know when the batteries need to be changed; the LEDs will flash three times and the acoustic signal will sound three times.
