Heated Mosquito Bite Itch Relief Gadget Makes Scratching Obsolete

If mosquitoes find you delicious, this gadget can help you find relief. Apparently, holding its heat source over the bite "helps neutralize the insect-injected proteins that cause itching and swelling."

Something tells me that good old scratching is still the best medicine—that and avoiding bananas. I seem to recall Mr. Wizard saying something about how mosquitoes love banana-scented blood or something. If that isn't true, Mr. Wizard has screwed me out of a whole lot of tasty summer treats over the years. [Improvements via 7Gadgets via OhGizmo]
