Figured you folks would have some good suggestions.
Used the bug pain reliever stick, "After-Bite", on my 4-1/2 yr old
Grandson for a simple mosquito bite.
Kid literally went thru the roof.

Perhaps a change in formula ?
Anyway, anyone suggest a simple stick type applicator bug pain reliever
that won't be worse than the bite itself, and is effective ?
What kind of roof did he literally go through? Was it

I've not tried bite remedies, but I'm curious about

benefit of the gel products is that the gel dries quickly and forms a
skin over the applied area, which takes a little more effort wash or
