Calagel Medicated Anti-Itch Gel
Calagel® Medicated Anti-itch Gel
Unlike pink runny calamine lotions, CalaGel® Medicated Anti-itch Gel stays where you put it. The clear, hydrocortisone-free antihistamine gel dries quickly, leaving an invisible, anti-itch skin protectant shield on your tender skin. CalaGel provides relief from the pain and itching associated with minor burns, sunburn, minor cuts, scrapes, insect bites and other skin irritations including poison ivy, oak and sumac rash.
When used with Tecnu® Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser, Calagel is highly effective in treating poison ivy, oak and sumac rash. Use Tecnu first to remove the rash causing oil, urushiol (oo-roo-she-all). After washing with Tecnu, apply Calagel to offer cooling relief to your inflamed, itchy rash.
What people are saying about CalaGel
"Just wanted to share my story regarding your product.
I am a resident of Columbus, Ohio and grew up in Northwest Ohio. At age 45 I endured my first experience of poison ivy. I began with a small rash one week prior to leaving for a week long trip to Southeastern Wyoming. The day before I left for Wyoming I contacted my doctor asking if he could recommend something else to use to help to control my poison ivy. I was using medicated IVAREST and it wasn't helping. My doctor recommended using hydrocortisone cream. I left for vacation, and 5 days later I had the rash everywhere. When I couldn't take it another moment, we happened to pass a drug store with a pharmacy in the town of Custer, South Dakota. I went inside showed the pharmacist my rash, and he recommended CalaGel. I was provided relief very quickly. It took the itch away within minutes, and started drying out the rash within a day or so. I was amazed and extremely pleased with your product. I was able to enjoy the last part of our vacation. I have since recommended it to family and friends, and they are also enjoying the relief the product provides.
Thanks for providing such a great product!" - JG, Pickerington, Ohio
"I would just like to take a minute to tell you that I just tried your CalaGel today and it is wonderful!!!! I am 52 years old and have been tormented all my life with poison oak/ivy....If I could tell the difference, I probably would not be getting in it so much... My latest bout with this annoying little plant came from my pet Border Collie, Jake....I tried to tell him to stay out of the poison oak growing on the hill, but you know how dogs are????? Anyway, a girl I work with told me about your product so I purchased a bottle, not thinking it would really work...W O W!...was I wrong...In the past, I have had shots, steroid packs, and a long line of messy creams and nothing worked as well as CalaGel... Thanks again!" - S. G., Sparta, TN
"To whom it may concern:
My son broke out last evening with a severe case of poison ivy. He came to me around 2:00 am and he was covered with the horrible red rash. I went to Wal-Mart and normally I buy calamine lotion or Benadryl, but they usually take about three applications to see any results. I saw CalaGel with a trail size bottle of Tecnu in one pack and decided to give it a try. When I got home, I applied both lotions to him, as directed. He didn't complain anymore during the night. When I woke up this morning, the rash was almost gone. Now you need to understand my son's history. He is in remission from cancer and where his immune system is still not that strong, he is very allergic to poison ivy, oak and bug bites affect him worse than normal. I generally take him to the doctor and they administer a shot of steroids to clear his rashes. Anyway, I would recommend this medication to anyone with a rash. Your product is amazing. I thank you for making Tecnu and CalaGel. It made my job as a mom a little easier." - R. K.
"Relief, blessed relief! I have known about the Tec Laboratories products for a while and have used Tecnu quite often to both prevent and minimize the effects of the poison ivy I inadvertently come across while hiking. I recently had forgotten to apply a good coat of insect repellent while out hiking and came home with the worst case of chigger bites I had ever had. Seeking relief from the maddening itch, I saw your Calagel product in the itch relief section of the pharmacy. I knew that if anyone could make a product that would relieve the symptoms of chigger bites, Tec Labs would do it best.
Though not specifically for chigger bites, the Calagel started to work almost instantly in relieving the itching that those nasty critters had cursed me with. I was finally able to get a full night's sleep without waking myself up by scratching the bites. Thanks again for making a product that is not only better than the competition but is often less expensive as well. My medicine cabinet will always have your products in it." - M.
