Anthisan is antihistamine cream, designed to offer relief to insect bites and stings.
As a cream, it can be applied directly to the bite or sting. This gives quick relief to itching. As scratching can further damage the skin, it is important that the itching is dealt with quickly when treating bites or stings.
When an insect bites you, you will generally feel pain, itching and also notice redness and swelling in the area. Anthisan treats all of these.
The active ingredient is mepyramine maleate. This is an antihistamine. This blocks the effects of histamines, which are released by the body when it detects a harmful substance. The side effects of histamines are swelling and itching.
Anthisan can be used by anyone over the age of two.
If you are bitten or stung you should:
- Apply the cream as quickly as possible
- Apply a thin layer directly to the affected area
- Repeat up to three times a day, for three days
If you are still experiencing redness or swelling after this time, you should see your doctor.
