We have not tested Calagel to be used on animals so we cannot recommend using it on your dog.

Calagel has not been tested for use on ringworm. We encourage you to seek advice from your physician or pharmacist for proper care/treatment.

We recommend consulting your physician first.

We have one medicated product that contains menthol at inactive levels, our anti-itch gel called Calagel.
All product labels can be found here in our Tips and Info section.

Calagel Medicated Anti-itch Gel is an over-the-counter medication that has a two year expiration date from the day it is manufactured. The date can be found marked near the batch code vertically on the side of the bottle label. It will be marked as "EXP month/year", so for example EXP 6/2018 would expire in June 2018. If you purchase Calagel in a box with a 2 oz. Tecnu Original inside, the expiration date will also be stamped on the bottom of the box.

The drug facts label on Calagel states, "Stop use and ask a doctor if condition worsens or if symptoms persist for more than 7 days, or clear up and occur again within a few days."

If you have been using Calagel on your rash for over a week now and are starting to notice increased redness and irritation, we would suggest you discontinue use and contact your doctor.

No, you should not use Calagel if you are allergic to sulfites. Tecnu Rash Relief Spray would be another option for itch relief.

We are not aware of any side effects of Calagel. However, if you are allergic to sulfites, you could experience: a reaction that can vary from mild to life threatening. The most common symptoms are mild and involve a skin rash accompanied by redness, hives, itching, flushing, tingling, and swelling. Respiratory symptoms include difficulty breathing, wheezing, and stridor. Gastrointestinal reactions involve nausea and stomach cramps. Less common but more serious signs include low blood pressure, shock, extreme difficulty breathing, and loss of consciousness. DO NOT USE Calagel IF ALLERGIC TO SULFITES.

    I have been fighting poison ivy since I was 10 years old. I remember that hideous pink stuff that never helped. About 25 years ago I discovered Calagel and it has worked miracles. I keep it in the cabinet constantly. And have recommended it to countless friends. They treat me as a hero but Tecnu is the real hero in the story.

    ...I have been using Calagel for over 10 years now. It is my go-to product for so many things...

  3. Ming Roberson (verified owner)

    I live in East Texas with lots of mosquitoes. First week I was here I bought Calagel from the pharmacy. That was 10 years ago. I will never be without it. I'm ordering today, as I'm getting low. Thanks for such a wonderful product.

    Yesterday I not only stepped in a fire ant pile but I also just stood in it for a good couple of seconds. I had bites all over my legs and feet... I put Calagel on the bites and they almost immediately stopped burning and itching. And after a day of using it my feet and ankles are almost back to normal. This stuff is amazing!

  5. GR (verified owner)

    I have used Calagel every summer to treat mosquito bites. It's thick, dries quickly, and immediately relieves the itching and burning. It also helps speed the recovery process! I have used Calagel on rashes and sunburn. I could not ask for a better product! I always highly recommend this product especially since working as an allied healthcare professional.
