What is Savlon Bites and Stings Gel?

Savlon Bites and Stings Gel is a treatment for insect bites and stings which works to relieve pain and irritation in the area while protecting from infection. Its unique formula relieves itching caused by insect bites, keeping you from scratching the area and letting it heal naturally. If you’re looking for a reliable treatment for bites and stings to add to your first aid kit, Savlon Bites and Stings Gel could be the perfect choice for you.

What happens when you get an insect bite?

When you get an insect bite or sting a small red lump will often form in your skin. This is harmless and will usually clear within a couple of days, but it can be itchy and irritating. Sometimes, bites can become infected or the person who received the bite can have a mild allergic reaction, which can mean that the bite takes longer to heal.

How does Savlon Bites and Stings Gel relieve insect bites?

Savlon Bites and Stings Gel contains three ingredients which work to relieve insect stings and bites. These three ingredients are:

    • Lidocaine hydrochloride 2%
    • Zinc Sulphate 1%
    • Cetrimide 0.5%

Lidocaine is a local anaesthetic, which works to relieve pain, itching, and irritation in your bite or sting. Zinc sulphate and cetrimide work together to protect the skin around your bite from becoming infected, using their properties as an astringent and as a disinfectant to tackle bacteria.

Does Savlon help mosquito bites?

Savlon Bites and Stings gel can be used on mosquito bites, as it’s suitable for all insect bites and stings. However, we’d always recommend avoiding mosquito bites wherever possible as they can be responsible for the spread of disease in certain areas. If you’re concerned about mosquito bites, make sure you wear tops with long sleeves and long trousers, covering as much of your skin as possible, and use a reliable insect repellent on areas you can’t cover with clothing.
