The Doctors test out a device that claims to help treat bug bites by sucking out the bug's venom or saliva. If you live in an area with mosquitos, this device might make your summer much more tolerable.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra tests out The Bug Bite Thing, a suction device that removes insect venom, saliva, and other irritants left under the skin after a bite. She explains that by removing the irritant, the body will stop producing the reaction that causes your skin to itch and swell. The device claims to work on bites from mosquitoes, bees, wasps, biting flies, no-see-ums, chiggers, sea lice, and more.
Dr. Batra tried out the Bug Bite Thing on her two children and says it was easy and effective at drawing out any venom or saliva left behind by the bug. She says both her children felt like using it helped to alleviate the itching and they had less inflammation.
She deems this product as a "buzz," but warns that anyone who might suffer from a severe or anaphylactic reaction to a bug bite, or someone who has been bitten by a poisonous spider to not use this device and to seek medical attention.
The Doctors think this device could be great to have on hand if you are spending the day outdoors or on a camping trip. See more reviews on The Bug Bite Thing and considering adding this best-selling item -- which is reusable, safe on kids, and uses no chemicals -- to your summer daypack.
