Product Description

A transdermal patch is an adhesive pad that is placed on the skin to deliver a time-released dose of active ingredients through the skin into the bloodstream. It is also called a skin patch. Skin patches are an alternative way for the body to absorb ingredients and/or medicines.

What is the Don't Bite Me! Patch?

It contains the active ingredients, Vitamin B1, (Thiamine Hydrochloride) and Aloe Vera. These ingredients are contained within a pressure-sensitive, latex-free acrylic adhesive, and when applied to a dry, hairless part of the body, are absorbed into the blood stream.

The Don't Bite Me! Patch should be used to repel biting insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, gnats, sand fleas and no-see-ums. Apply the patch TWO hours prior to being exposed to biting insects. Each Don't Bite Me! Patch is single use. 

The Don't Bite Me! Patch is effective for up to 36 hours. Smoking, alcoholic beverages and heavy insect infestation may require the application of a second patch.

To prevent skin irritation, use a different site for each application.

The most common side effect of the patch is a localized skin rash. The rash generally occurs due to a reaction to the adhesive on the patch. Use of a topical salve (such as an over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream) can usually relieve the discomfort.

The Don't Bite Me! Patch is also waterproof. Contact with water, when you are bathing, swimming, or showering, should not affect the integrity of the patch.

How To Apply the Don't Bite Me! Patch

STEP 1: The patch should be applied to clean, dry and hair-free skin on one of the recommended sites: on the hip, the buttocks, upper back and upper arm. Do not apply the patch to broken or irritated skin. Do not use moisturizers, creams or powder on the skin before applying the patch, as this may prevent the patch from adhering properly.

The Don't Bite Me! Patch has a liner that is divided into two sections.

STEP 2: Peel off one part of the liner and press that side of the patch against your skin.

STEP 3: Then fold back the patch, peel off the second half of the liner and press the second side of the patch against your skin.

STEP 4: Press firmly to make sure all the edges are secure.

To remove the patch, peel off one corner at a time and pull the patch smoothly away from the skin. The patch may leave a slight discoloration on some skin types which will fade naturally in a few days.

The transdermal delivery is what makes the patch so effective. Transdermal medical delivery and release systems have been on the market since 1982. After more than 20 yeas of extensive development, most major pharmaceutical companies now market transdermal systems for dispensing a great variety of pharmaceutical agents. The transdermal delivery and release system provides a highly efficient, safe and easy to use method for delivering active ingredients and other compounds to the body through intact skin, thereby offering many advantages over the traditional dosage forms.
