What Anthisan Cream is and what it is used for

Anthisan Cream Allergy Relief Cream contains a medicine called mepyramine maleate. This belongs to a group of medicines called antihistamines. It works by blocking a natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction.

It provides relief from pain, itching, and inflammation caused by insect stings, bites, and nettle rash.

Anthisan cream should be applied directly to the site of the insect bite, insect or stinging nettle rash. Containing the active ingredient Mepyramine Maleate 2% w/w, use as soon as possible after the bite or sting to help relieve itching, pain, swelling and inflammation.
