Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief is a James Alexander Corporation proprietary formulation that provides relief of pain and itching associated with insect bites and stings.
Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief was developed in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed rules for over-the counter topical analgesic drug products and contains two active ingredients (menthol and benzocaine) in the maximum allowable concentrations:
- Benzocaine – An advisory panel investigating external analgesic drug products for the FDA called benzocaine “one of the most widely used and safest topical anesthetics found in OTC preparations.” Benzocaine acts by blocking nerve and pain receptors.
- Menthol – According to the FDA Panel, “When applied to the skin, menthol stimulates the nerves for the perception of cold, while depressing those which perceive pain.”
James Alexander has combined these two highly effective active ingredients in a water soluble base that assures the formulation’s effectiveness.
James Alexander’s Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief Formulation swabs carry a five (5) year expiration date, the maximum allowed by the Food and Drug Administration.
