My two-year-old daughter was playing in Grandma's back yard last night when she suddenly doubled over, clutching her leg and shouting. A wasp had crawled up her pant leg, and by the time I figured out what was happening and got it off her, it had stung her 5 times all along her leg. My parents had some StingEze in their first aid gear, so I put it on the stings. My daughter stopped crying almost immediately, and two minutes later was acting as if she was in no pain at all. This morning her leg looks fine and you can hardly see where the stings were. I was very pleased with how effective StingEze was. I'll be adding some to my medicine cabinet as soon as I can get my hands on it.

I seldom write fan letters but, based on my experience with your product "StingEze," I felt compelled to do so.

I woke up recently with what looked like mosquito bites on one side of my face. In addition to looking horrible, they itched so badly that I was concerned that I would scratch them too hard and leave scars. So, on my way to work, I went to CVS and asked the pharmacist what she would recommend for a mosquito bite. She recommended StingEze. I immediately applied it and started feeling better. I kept on applying it throughout the day to keep myself from scratching.

Then, my arms started itching and huge welts appeared. I couldn't imagine that these welts were mosquito bites but I started applying the StingEze everywhere to get relief. By the end of the day, I had huge blisters and called the doctor. I found out that I had Poison Ivy - not mosquito bites - and she gave me steroid pills to alleviate the itching and told me to apply a topical gel. But, the topical gel was not giving me much relief. Whenever I applied StingEze to the affected area, I felt a lot more relief. And, StingEze dried up the poison ivy blisters faster.

I'm sure you've heard that Poison Ivy is terribly uncomfortable, so any kind of relief you can get is a blessing. So, thank you very much.

My name is Michael Pallante, and I am a big fan of your Stingeze product. I have actually had my half ounce bottle of Stingeze for approximately 27 years, purchasing it way back in 1983 while a member of the Boy Scouts of America. So little of the product is needed to relieve the awful itching that comes with an insect bite, that it has lasted me all these years. I am now living in Spain, and the other night I awoke to find that something had bitten me on the side of my hand. It really itched and I could not get back to sleep. So to the medicine cabinent I went, to my trusty bottle of Stingeze, and it never lets me down.

Thanks for creating a great product. I am glad that one day, maybe around 2030, when my Stingeze runs out, I can get another one.

Just wanted to tell you how much I like StingEze. I use it for mosquito and fire ant bites, and it's absolutely amazing how it makes them stop itching and burning! It is truly a great product, and expecially handy here in the South, where we have summer almost half the year.

I live in Texas where we have a long drawn out summer season and a lot of mosquitos!  I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how much StingEze has helped me this summer season!  As I was strolling the aisle looking for a new product to try on my mosquito bites, I picked up one of your StingEze anti-itch sprays.  After trying every single product on the market over the last couple of years, I cannot begin to tell you what a difference this product has made in my life.  Over the years I have had actual scarring on my legs from mosquito bites that I have scratched to death, even after using other products repeatedly without relief. I wish I had stumbled upon your product much sooner. This is the first product, and I've tried them all, to give me instant relief from those bites.  I love how one spray does the trick.  I haven't had to reapply it to the same spot twice which is amazing, and amazing relief.  

After visiting your website, I am delighted to find that you have this product in larger sizes (the one I found is for a purse or pocket).  I will be heading to CVS this afternoon to see if I  pick up more. Congratulations on a great product!

Just wanted to write and say thank you for your product. I am a contractor and wound up in a nest of yellow jackets today. I was stung 11 times. I made it home about 25 minutes later. I asked my wife to go to the drug store and find something. I normally swell up fairly bad with 1 sting and 11 kind of worried me. Anyway she went to Rite-Aid and found Stingeze. She brought it home and put it on. It is now 4-1/2 hours later and while my stings spots are not blemish free, they are not swollen, and are barely even red. I have a blog on my website and am going to do a write up on this product. Thanks again!

This product is the best in the world. It is great for any bug bite but the only thing that will take care of fire ant bite. If you place this on the ant bite right way the next day you will not have an infected bite. That is what you get if you don't treat it with StingEze and it takes away the stinging pain right away. Our son-in-law is in the Army and is in Iraq right now and we have sent him some for his bug bites. This is the very best but sometimes hard to find. Walmart carries it in their sporting goods section but today we could not find it and it is very important to have here in Texas. Just thought you would like to know that you have a GREAT product. Thank you.

I have used Sting Eze for 5 years. I have a summer home near Syracuse , NY. When the Deer Flys start to bite I would have to sell the house and move because I swell up so bad from their bites. Sting Eze takes 80% of the itch and almost all the swelling away in about 20 minutes. Thank you.

I have an allergy to hymenoptera (bee, wasp & ant) stings. Some time back, I was stung by a honey bee. The friend whom I was visiting at the time ran inside to her medicine chest and pulled out a little container of StingEze. I told her emphatically that I needed to go to the hospital immediately, because the sting already was beginning to swell.

Without a word, she bundled me into her car and drove me to the emergency room. On the way, she suggested, "Why not try a bit of that? It can't hurt, and might help. I use it all the time." I followed her advice, and was quite surprised when the intense burning at the sting site stopped immediately. The swelling continued, but much more slowly. Before we reached the hospital, I gently scraped the area with a pocket knife blade to remove the stinger, and applied another dose of StingEze.

I was completely baffled when we arrived at the emergency room and I explained my issue. The burning pain was quite gone, and the swelling was going down fast. I never had experienced that response from any other consumer bite or sting medication, and I had tried many. The duty physician took one look and asked what I had put on the wound. I showed him the little container, and he nodded.

"I wish more people would keep that stuff in their pockets when they are outside," he opined. "While I can not legitimately recommend any particular brand of OTC medication, I just will say that it seems to work quite well. You don't seem to need a shot. Have a nice day." He walked away whistling Flight of the Bumblebee. I left, very happy to have found a really effective product. Since then, I have used this solution quite successfully on a number of bee and wasp stings. My daughter and son both inherited my sensitivity to hymanoptera, and I have used it successfully on them, as well.


this stuff is great! I was bitten by ???? two days ago and have been applying sting eze since. It works almost imediately


I've had a small bottle of StingEze in the cabinet for years but used it for the first time last night after getting stung by 10-15 fire ants. When I woke up this morning there was no swelling, redness, or festering! You can barely even tell that I had been stung at all! This stuff is AMAZING!!!


I live in the south where the bugs are huge and my son has always had very sensitive skin. Your product is the only one that I have found that works without irritating his skin. We use it all the time. Next week we are going on vacation and taking a swamp tour in Louisianna and StingEze is a must-have item for a trip like that. Thanks for making such a great product!

My daughter and I are allergic to the protein in mosquito bites, and I just wanted to say that we love your products. My daughter uses StingEze for kids and I use it too when I'm out. I love it so much it really takes away the itch for a while; we always keep them on hand. Again thanks so much.
