Solarcaine First Aid Medicated Spray Review

Solarcaine is a great and convenient medicated spray for temporarily relieving the discomforts of burns or insect bites. Solarcaine is a registered trademark of Schering-Plough HealthCare Products Inc.

I was given the opportunity to review the Solarcaine First Aid Medicated Spray. During the time I got sunburned from being exposed to the sun too long at the park, I used the spray to relieve the pain and the burning sensation went away almost immediately. It provided a cooling relief of skin pain and itching from minor burns, cuts, and scrapes.

Since my toddler is just under 2 years, I didn't feel comfortable having him use the product. I was afraid it would sting him. Brandon only got sunburn on the tip of his ears once during this summer, but it wasn't very bad. Whenever he has cuts and scraps, I'd only use aloe gel for him. My husband and I will be using Solarcaine when we need it.
