Did you know that 65% of adults suffer from itchy symptoms each year, and of those 65%, nearly 2/3 will turn to the relief of creams, lotions, sprays, and gels for itch symptoms every year? (Harris Interactive for TriCalm) What makes TriCalm unique is that it is a steroid-free solution that you can get over the counter. The great thing about not containing steroids is that this makes TriCalm safe to reapply as often as you like! TriCalm is safe for the application of adults and children over the age of 2. TriCalm is also patented with the ingredient Cosmederm-7®. This unique formula selectively blocks those nerves that cause itching and burning without causing unnecessary side effects like numbing or thinning of the skin. TriCalm also contains the active ingredient Aluminum acetate which is a water soluble salt compound that is often found in medicines like antiseptics or astringents.
What kind of skin irritations does TriCalm help to alleviate:
Some examples include environmental conditions such as winter skin; poison ivy, oak, and sumac; mosquito bites, insect bites, and other various insect stings.
Other examples include those caused by allergic reactions to soaps, cosmetics, detergents, and even jewelry.
TriCalm also works on itch caused by eczema, shingles, athlete's foot and other various fungal infections.
Currently TriCalm is available for purchase at Walgreens, CVS, and other local retailers nationwide, as well as TriCalm.com

When the opportunity to review TriCalm presented itself I knew I couldn't pass it up. I was interested in how well a steroid-free anti-itch gel could work, especially for someone with eczema like my oldest daughter. While she isn't currently having a flare up with her eczema, this is going to be the first product I reach for when she does! I'm also thinking about how great this product is going to be for when someone in the house gets an itchy insect bite. The ability to reach for TriCalm over a product containing steroids would definitely be my first choice as a mom.
What would you use TriCalm for to replace steroid creams in your household?
