    This is fantastic stuff. I've used it on spider bites, ant bites, mosquito bites, and poison oak. Itches are so frustrating and this stuff works. Once you spray it on your skin, it relieves the horrid itch within a minute. Completely. There is no middle ground of a "sort of itch."
    Depending on the cause of the itch, this spray lasts from 3 hours to a half hour. For instance, if it's a fresh mosquito bite, it might last an hour. If it's a 3 day old bite, it will last longer. I am currently using it on a MINOR and TINY case of poison oak, and am back to buy more since I am almost out. I am rating 4 stars instead of 5 because the spray nozzle could be better. It goes on thin and runny, instead of more of a light spray. Preservation tip: Do not allow this bottle to get hot in the sun. Store it in a dark, dry place, as you would all medications. The sun and heat will most probably cause it to lose it's potency. Shake before use.

    If you're purchasing this for poison ivy, you're wasting your money. I used it on a moderate case of poison ivy for three days with absolutely no relief of the itch or the rash. In desperation I asked my pharmacist for a recommendation and he said any of the hydrocortisone products would be a better choice. I noticed immediate improvement after using a store brand of 1% hydrocortisone cream. The itch relief spray (and gel) just doesnt work on poison ivy.

    Comments about Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, 2 fl oz:

    The bottle is convenient and easy to stick in a bag for the summer bug season. The spray works well enough, and I got fast relief of my itchy bug bites (noseeums). The relief however, wasn't particularly lasting (only about 30 minutes). The spray is wide and great for large areas, but hard to target small itchy spots, (easy enough to spray on a finger and apply directly). The cooling is provided by the alcohol, but it will sting if you have broken skin. Overall I'm very happy with this product and it is better than most itch relief products I've used (but nothing is perfect).

          I am an insulin dependent diabetic and went on the OmniPod pump system awhile back. The pump works great except for I was having a problem with getting horrible itchy bumps a day or two after removing a site (you have to move the pump every three days and there is adhesive involved as well as a cannula under the skin). There are some very expensive solutions to this problem (surgical films) but the company rep told me to try spraying Benedryl on my pump sites after they are prepped but before attaching the site. It did not totally eliminate itching but it sure helps a lot and doesnt break the bank!

            I carry it with me all summer in case of bug bites. It works much better than the cream version but it creates a sticky residue on your skin, so your clothes stick to it - or if you cross your legs, your other leg sticks to it! The containers also clog up very often. Usually, I can fix that by taking off the cap and forcing water through it. Sometimes, it's just stuck and I have to buy a new one - and that's a waste of money. But it's worth it. Gets rid of the itch.

                Comments about Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, 2 fl oz:

                Be aware that this Benadryl spray is alcohol based. I used on my hives but had already scratched at them so it stung a lot. Same thing for my little daughter. Had hives from grass or something and sprayed this on... she was screaming from the alcohol sting. I think I'll go with the Benadryl cream instead. Plus there is an odd sticky residue that almost seems to cause an itch on its own.

                I found myself covered in itchy bumps from ankles to armpits after working in a tall grass field. I'd trade 1000 mosquito bites for the 100 chigger bites that I came home with. (At least mosquitos tend to stay away from some unmentionable creases!) Lanacane cream worked 0% of the itch away (tried it first) and the Benadryl Spray worked 100% of the itch away. I will be buying more Benadryl Spray. Wish I could return the unused portion of Lanacane for a full refund!

                This product is terrible for bites! I am having an allergic reaction to spider and/or mosquito bites and I bought this thinking it would work for the terrible itching on my arms, it works for about 5 minutes and that is only on the open bites/wounds. Also this rpduct leaves a very sticky residue, similar to setting your arm on a lollipop and everything you touch or bump will stick to you.

                Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength

                 – Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, is a topical agent designed to relieve itching at its source by blocking histamine, the compound that causes itch. It can temporarily relieve pain and itching associated with insect bites, minor burns, sunburn, scrapes, cuts, and rashes due to poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac. As an added benefit, Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, can help reduce the oozing and weeping of poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac.

                How to Use



                Benadryl Itch Relief Spray is designed for topical use and should not be ingested. Simply spray the product on to the itchy area of the skin, following the directions on the label for dosing and frequency of application. Note that children under the age of 2 should not use Benadryl Itch Relief Spray except under a doctor's supervision. The spray should also not be used to treat chickenpox, measles, or blisters. It should not be used on extensive areas of the skin or with any other product containing diphenhydramine, including oral products.

                What Are the Active Ingredients?



                Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, contains two active ingredients. The first is diphenhydramine hydrochloride, a topical analgesic that can help relieve itching as well as minor discomfort. The second active ingredient is zinc acetate, a skin protectant that is also contained in many throat lozenges.

                Cautions



                Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and anyone with a chronic, inflammatory skin condition should consult with a physician before using this Benadryl product. If any condition persists beyond seven days or worsens while using Benadryl Itch Relief Spray, Extra Strength, a health care provider should be contacted.
