Beurer Insect Bite Healer
Beurer BR 60 Insect Bite Healer treats insect bites and stings, reducing and preventing itching, inflammation and swelling caused by the insect bites. Beurer BR 60 is effective and safe and suitable for regular use. Even pregnant women can safely use the Beurer BR 60 Insect Bite Healer as it utilises only healing heat rather than using chemicals or drugs.
Insect bites lead to painful and swollen stings and bite marks that itch, inflame, and swell. Beurer BR 60 Insect Bite Healer effectively relieves the symptoms of insect bite by application of heat. The insect bite toxins that cause the itching, inflammation and swelling are commonly protein molecules. Proteins change their molecular structure with increased temperature and thereafter lose their side-effects causing properties, leading to reduction in symptoms, greater comfort, and accelerated healing.

Using Beurer Insect Bite Healer
The Beurer Insect Bite Healer is easy to use.
- Prior to applying the insect bite healer, ensure that the sting area is clean and that all remains of the sting have been carefully removed. Ensure that the device is cleaned before and after each use.
- For best outcomes, use the Insect Bite Healer immediately after the sting or bite occur - before the toxins take full effects in the skin. If you wait too long, the toxins begin to act with itching, inflammation and swelling already taking place in the stung area. However, even at the later stage after the sting, the Insect Bite Healer can still be helpful in relieving itching and speeding up healing.
- Ensure that the batteries are fitted in the battery compartment and the compartment lid is closed.
- Slide the ON/OFF switch to the ON position – you will see the indicator LED light up blue
- Select an appropriate programme:
- for sensitive skin or for first use – select 3 second programme by pressing the activation button once (1 x)
- for normal skin and subsequent applications – select 6 second programme by pressing the activation button twice (2 x)
- Please note: When using the insect bite healer for the first time, you may opt to use it on the 3 second programme to enable you to test your tolerance of the heat treatment
- At the end of the application, the device sounds an acoustic signal and the illuminated ring goes out. Remove the hot plate from the skin as soon as the acoustic signal sounds. Heating of the hot plate automatically stops.
- If you do not intend to use the device, slide the ON/OFF switch to the OFF position.
- Alternatively, you can re-use the device on another sting. However, please note that the maximum number of 5 applications per hour on the same treatment area must not be exceeded.
- Ensure you clean the device after use.
- Ensure that you follow cleaning instructions outlined in user manual. Beurer BR 60 Insect Bite Healer is a multiple use device. In the interest of hygiene and prevent potential cross contamination, the device must be cleaned before and after each use. Consult user manual for details and helpful advice.
- Ensure that the Beurer BR 60 Insect Bite Healer is switched off, cool and clean prior to placing in storage. If you intend to store it unused for a long time, it is best to remove batteries from the compartment for the duration of storage.
