Product Description

Biteback Products logoBiteback Products logo

Biteback ‘Sweet Relief’ Cream is a highly effective cream to help stop your horse itching. This soothing, moisturising, plant-based cream is especially useful for horses who experience an extreme reaction to midge bites. If used prior to the midge season, in very early spring, it can be used preventatively, forming a barrier to midge bites and therefore stopping any rubbing behaviour from starting. The cream contains the active ingredient Benzyl Benzoate, which has the power to break the itching and rubbing cycle, as well as Benzyl Alcohol to soothe the itch.

If your horse has already rubbed itself and has patches of toughened skin, this moisturising cream will soothe, revitalise and encourage new skin/ hair growth.

We also offer a sprayable Sweet Relief lotion but this cream version is more concentrated and is easy to apply by hand, so it’s ideal for mane, top of tail and faces. There’s also a Sweet Relief Silver cream in the range, for helping turn around the condition of skin where extensive rubbing has resulted in abrasions.

Used by horse owners for over 12 years with fantastic feedback.

How to use

Always 24 hour patch test before using a new product

Rub into the affected areas using your fingers or a rubber curry comb. We suggest using daily during ‘midge season’ (usually March – October). Midges swarm and bite at dusk and dawn, so applying in the late afternoon/ early evening application will provide best protection.

A noticeable improvement in the skin’s condition should be seen within a week.
