Treat insect bites with heat
What happens during a mosquito bite?
Mosquito saliva numbs the bite and inhibits blood clotting. Immediately after an insect bite, the body releases histamine. This leads to itching, pain and swelling.
What helps against itchy insect bites?
Local heating of the affected skin area (hyperthermia) can reduce the release of histamine and thus reduce itching and pain. The treatment only takes a few seconds at a temperature of about 50°C.
Every person is different - so is every insect.
This way the itching can no longer be transmitted properly and the accompanied urge to itch disappears. In order to achieve this relieving effect on skin nerves, a short heat pain is necessary.
Since the temperature sensitivity of the skin varies depending on the person and body part, heat_it offers different settings for an optimized treatment.
