Q. If a little is good is more better.
A. No! Just apply a little – a thin layer each time. If you apply it too thickly it creates a film that cracks and needs rubbing or peeling off.
Q. Should it be rubbed in?
A. No. Just smooth it over the bite and surrounding area and leave it to do it’s healing unfettered!
Q. Why do I have to keep applying it?
A. Because it’s a gel it is quickly absorbed.
