Medi Creme also provides relief for itching due to non-poisonous bites and stings. Medi Pulv is a dry, touch-free antiseptic powder designed to be applied at the wound site to stop infections while physically absorbing moisture to aid the healing process.
Always read the label and follow the directions for use.
