As soon as you get bitten or stung by a bee, mosquito or any insect for that matter, rub on a good dollop of Lucas' Papaw Ointment on the area and it will stop the itching for 24 hours. It works for me and my children and I bring it on every single holiday – a godsend, truly! Not only does this miracle product help stop the itching, it actually helps the bite heal thanks to the papaya (which is my favourite part of the whole product because it smells amazing), the antiseptic and the anti-inflammatory properties. This stuff is made from Australian grown papaws, all other ingredients are sourced from the highest quality accredited suppliers, and made wholly in Australia. The Ointment contains high quality pharmaceutical grade petroleum jelly as the carrier for the active ingredient – fresh fermented papaw, and petroleum jelly does not block pores, is not carcinogenic or toxic so the manufacturers believe it suits all ages. However, I still think it's a good idea to make sure that you do a patch test first especially on your children before slathering on a ton of Lucas Papaw.

What You'll Do

Tips & Warnings

  • If you have an allergic reaction to an insect bite like serious swelling or restricted breathing, seek the help of a medical professional immediately. Again, always patch test a new product especially on children.
