Insect bites can be a nuisance and a source of discomfort. They get red, they itch, and they hurt. And, most annoyingly, they bring constant attention to themselves. But now there is a small device that can help treat them: Heat It.

Small device to treat bites

Heat It is a device that uses your smartphone to treat insect bites. It is very small, about the size of the top of a key, and it fits on a key ring. The device works by applying heat to the bite, which breaks the cycle of itching and scratching. The heat is applied for between four and ten seconds, and depending on the settings, the temperature ranges from 120 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit. Studies have shown that one treatment is usually enough to stop the itching and pain.

To use the device, you take it off the key ring and plug it into your smartphone. This will open up the Heat It app, which allows you to select if you want to treat yourself or a child, and if you are sensitive or not. After selecting the appropriate settings, you hit start, which preheats the device for a few seconds. Then you press it onto the bite, and the heat dissipates the pain and itching.

The device is also very affordable, costing only 40 dollars for a one-time purchase. It is also designed to last for thousands of uses, and it can be sanitized in between uses if desired. There is no rechargeable battery, as it powers off the phone. The heating element is not consumable, so there is nothing to maintain or replace as you use it.

Heat It was invented two years ago by a German startup and has already had great success in Germany, with over a quarter million customers. Heat It is a great way to treat insect bites without having to resort to using a hot spoon or a lighter, which can be dangerous. It is small and convenient, and it is a great way to quickly and safely treat insect bites.
