The Therapik Sting Relief Tool apparently provides temporary relief from the pain of an insect bite or sting by delivering a shot of heat to the area. Hmm…so we’re wondering whether the pain relief is actually more of a pain replacement feature. Heat vs sting. Anyway, the instructions tell you not to use the device on a scorpion, snake or spider bite, which is kind of upsetting, because we were definitely going to carry it around with us on the bus for just such an emergency. To you $12.95.
The THERAPIK is intended to be used to deliver heat to a localized area of the body in order to relieve the pain associated with stings from insects and sea creatures that deliver thermolabile venom. Such animals and insects include bees, wasps, hornets and jellyfish. In addition, the soothing heat also provides effective relief from the itching and irritation due to flea and mosquito bites and contact with stinging nettles.
