The Sting Goes with Stingose

The Sting Goes with Stingose

It always happens when you’re doing something wonderful: sitting outside on a balmy summer evening having a barbie; swimming at the beach on a stunning summer’s day; or when you’re walking barefoot in the grass through the park. Suddenly – argh! A nasty little critter has bitten or stung you and the glorious moment is ruined.

Summer certainly has its perks (to say the least!) but it’s also the time of year when stinging, biting insects come out in force, and we’re outside a lot to face them. Nothing ruins a perfect summer picnic like a bee sting underfoot, and nothing’s more irritating than staying awake all night madly scratching the mozzie bites on your legs.

Stingose helps to minimise the pain and itch associated with an insect attack or jellyfish sting – everything from mozzies, ants, bees and wasps, to sandflies, sea lice, vines and nettles.

A four way action means Stingose provides fast pain relief within minutes; it minimises itching, swelling, blistering and inflammation; and it cleans the skin from sunscreen and oils which allows the medication to work faster.

Make sure you have some Stingose on hand this summer. While antihistamines reduce the allergic response, Stingose targets the source of the reaction by breaking down the venom and toxins from a wide range of insects, plants and marine life. Stingose has been clinically trialled and shown to provide complete pain relief in 99.4% of cases.*

So if you’re going camping, to the beach, on a picnic, or if you just like to eat al fresco on warm summer evenings – make sure you keep Stingose nearby, so the moment isn’t ruined when a stinger strikes.

Available from pharmacies nationwide, RRP $14.99.
