This is not your grandma's pink, flaky calamine anti-itch lotion. Calagel® Medicated Anti-itch Gel is a clear, skin protecting shield that offers cooling itch relief that stays where you put it.  Calagel provides itch and pain relief for insect bites, sunburn, minor burns, poison ivy and oak rash, and other minor rashes or skin irritations.

Product Description

Get instant, cooling, treatment of your itch with maximum strength Calagel Medicated Anti-itch Gel! Calagel's formula is hydrocortisone-free and offers the "five A's" to relieve your painful, itchy rash:

  • Antiseptic - Kills germs to help prevent infection because scratching your itch can spread bacteria.
  • Analgesic - A pain reliever because rashes and skin irritations can sometimes be painful.
  • Antipruritic - Maximum strength itch relief that is long lasting.
  • Antihistamine - Reduces swelling with an antihistamine for allergy relief.
  • Astringent - Some rashes like poison ivy and oak can have oozing blisters so Calagel includes an astringent to dry oozing.

When used with Tecnu® Original Outdoor Skin Cleanser, Calagel is a highly effective itching treatment for poison ivy, oak and sumac rash. Wash with Tecnu Original first to remove the rash causing oil, urushiol (oo-roo-she-all). After washing with Tecnu Original, apply Calagel to offer cooling relief to your inflamed, itchy poison ivy, oak or sumac rash.

I would just like to take a minute to tell you that I just tried your CalaGel today and it is wonderful!!!! I am 52 years old and have been tormented all my life with poison oak/ivy....If I could tell the difference, I probably would not be getting in it so much... My latest bout with this annoying little plant came from my pet Border Collie, Jake....I tried to tell him to stay out of the poison oak growing on the hill, but you know how dogs are????? Anyway, a girl I work with told me about your product so I purchased a bottle, not thinking it would really work...W O W!...was I wrong...In the past, I have had shots, steroid packs, and a long line of messy creams and nothing worked as well as CalaGel... Thanks again!

Relief, blessed relief! I have known about the Tec Laboratories products for a while and have used Tecnu quite often to both prevent and minimize the effects of the poison ivy I inadvertently come across while hiking. I recently had forgotten to apply a good coat of insect repellent while out hiking and came home with the worst case of chigger bites I had ever had. Seeking relief from the maddening itch, I saw your Calagel product in the itch relief section of the pharmacy. I knew that if anyone could make a product that would relieve the symptoms of chigger bites, Tec Labs would do it best.

Though not specifically for chigger bites, the Calagel started to work almost instantly in relieving the itching that those nasty critters had cursed me with. I was finally able to get a full night's sleep without waking myself up by scratching the bites. Thanks again for making a product that is not only better than the competition but is often less expensive as well. My medicine cabinet will always have your products in it.

What an amazing product is Calagel! I have been tormented with itching/burning on my lower legs all winter. I have tried different soaps, aloe, various lotions, Cortisone 10, and each has given short-term but not completely effective relief. So I searched the shelves at my local Rite Aid pharmacy last night and found Calagel. Last night was the first night I have had an itch-less night in many weeks. What a blessing it is. Kudos for putting this wonderful product on the market.

Just wanted to share my story regarding your product.

I am a resident of Columbus, Ohio and grew up in Northwest Ohio. At age 45 I endured my first experience of poison ivy. I began with a small rash one week prior to leaving for a week long trip to Southeastern Wyoming. The day before I left for Wyoming I contacted my doctor asking if he could recommend something else to use to help to control my poison ivy. I was using medicated IVAREST and it wasn't helping. My doctor recommended using hydrocortisone cream.

I left for vacation, and 5 days later I had the rash everywhere. When I couldn't take it another moment, we happened to pass a drug store with a pharmacy in the town of Custer, South Dakota. I went inside showed the pharmacist my rash, and he recommended CalaGel. I was provided relief very quickly. It took the itch away within minutes, and started drying out the rash within a day or so. I was amazed and extremely pleased with your product. I was able to enjoy the last part of our vacation. I have since recommended it to family and friends, and they are also enjoying the relief the product provides.

Thanks for providing such a great product!

Mid winter clearing of a new property, ambushed after a few days with rash that needed attention. Recognized its appearance and went for the trusted remedy. Tecnu, followed by Jewel weed soap and cool down with Calagel. Good and dependable system tks


My dad had given this itch relief to my daughter for her itching from a bug bite. I had forgotten about it and was treating what I thought was a bug bite. After two days of welting and severe itching I saw the bottle of calagel. I thought what can it hurt. I was surprised that after only 8 hours the welts were almost gone and the itching was cut by 90%! I have before and after pictures and they are simply amazing! I will support this product!

I work in a hot and humid environment in an already hot and humid Georgia. I often get prikly heat rash during the summer months, so bad I can hardly sleep. I have tried all kinds of different products to provide some relief from the pain and itching. My wife picked up a bottle of Calagel for me to try out, and I was amazed at how much better my rash felt seconds after applying. This is a great product.


Chiggers have been particularly bad in my part of Texas this year; I haven't had so many bites since I was a kid! I found your product at my local Dollar General, while searching for SOMETHING to give me some relief, and have been impressed--cool, clear, soothing, and long lasting. Great job!
