The KinKan Insect Bite Relief Stick is one of those things that make modern Japanese culture the multicolored patchwork it is: a company that was founded in 1923 produced a balm that brings relief from various pains including stiff shoulders, lumbar pain, and even bruises or sprains, and also itches caused by insect bites. The salve is still sold today and remains very popular among people of all ages.
The KinKan Insect Bite Relief Stick is made of a blend of ammonia solution, mint, camphor, capsicum (i.e., chili pepper), and ginseng. These are all ingredients used in traditional Chinese and Japanese medicine, and their combined effect can help with both skin and muscle problems. It is an over-the-counter medicine that does not need a prescription, and is very easy to use (you just apply it on your skin directly on the area that hurts or itches). It comes in either 50 ml (1.7 fl oz) or 100 ml (3.4 fl oz) sizes.
