(via Cheap-looking bug-bite zapper actually works - Boing Boing)
Somehow, I have managed to escape this summer without any major bug bite fiascos. This is an unusual phenomenon, as I usually get eaten alive, and I end up covering myself in hydrocortisone, toothpaste, aloe—it’s a mess.
So you can imagine my intrigue when I read about TheraPik, a $13 device that zaps heat at yo’ bites until the venom’s proteins break down. It sounds like some scary science, but I’d take that over scratchytimes any day of the week.
