Midgie Magic (formerly Sandfly Salve) was designed many years ago to help newcomers to Broome cope with biting midges and other insects. This cream is to put on after you have been bitten, as subsequent swelling, itching and infection following midge bites is the main problem. The cream helps to soothe, reduce the itch, disinfect and heal up bites with natural anti-inflammatory ingredients. Works also on bee stings and even, so we are told, on Scottish midgies! (However, it doesn't work on centipede bites - resign yourself to four or five hours of pain!)
Make sure you download the pamphlet "Biting Midges in Broome" for more information to understand and cope with them.
Apply frequently until bites have healed. Can be used in conjunction with Herbal Skin Calm, a cooling soothing gel for all itchy skin conditions.
