The Doctors TV Show today was called Health Trends for 2011. I do not know how The Drs TV Show finds so many interesting new products, but I must say that I am totally intrigued by The Therapik Laser, which Dr Andrew Ordon said is a new device on the market that generates heat to relieve the itchiness, burning sensation, and pain from bug bites.
The Doctors: Does The Therapik Laser Work?
Dr Travis Stork said that he heard that they would be demonstrating The Therapik Laser and that he and Dr Jim Sears would play “rock, paper, scissors” to vie for the pleasure of getting stung by a bee in order to try out this product. Poor Dr Jim lost and so, Dr Chris Kleronomos stung Dr Jim Sears with a bee (do not try this at home!). Dr Ordon pulled out the stinger and applied The Therapik Laser to the bee sting. You have to hold The Therapik on the bug bite until it gets hot because once the device achieves a certain level it neutralizes the venom of the bite. Dr Ordon said that The Therapik is a great solution for bee stings, ticks, mosquitoes, fleas, flies, and even jelly fish stings. However, The Therapik does not work well on spiders or snakes.
The Doctors TV Show: Therapik Laser
Dr Travis made a good point, which is that you basically would need to carry The Therapik with you all the time, because you have to apply it as soon as you get the bug bite or bee sting. But lets say that you have a backyard full of mosquitoes or you go on a trip to the beach or camping and tend to get bug bites there – just pack The Therapik in your bag and be on your way. Dr Travis Stork did warn that people who have allergic reactions should still carry an EpiPen, because The Therapik is not a replacement for an Epi Pen.
