How does BitePatch work?
BitePatch uses trans-dermal grid technology to raise the epidermis (the top layer of skin) from the dermis (the second layer of skin) to relieve irritation. BitePatch uses a mechanical mechanism of action and doesn't rely on chemicals to work.
How long does it take for the patches to work?
Some people will experience instant relief and others may take a little longer.
How big are the patches?
Each BitePatch is 0.78 x 1.06 inches (20 x 27mm). Small enough to be discreet and adequately cover a bite.
How long do the patches stay on for?
Approximately 4 - 7 days after which they will peel off easily. You can remove at any time and they will stay on in the shower, bath or pool.
Will they cause an allergic reaction?

Do the patches work as a mosquito repellent?
They do not repel any insects, they will work very quickly providing itch relief on any bites you may have.
Are there any side effects?
There should be no side effects. People with sensitive skin may experience a mild skin irritation. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
