I forwarded your questions on to the mastermind behind Redneck Remedy (you can follow him on twitter @redneckremedy) and here are his answers--
Q: How safe is it for kids?
A: It is safe for use in kids ages 2 and up.
Q: What is the shelf-life?
A: At least a year
Q:How does it work on itchiness?
A: It is great for itchiness. The hydrocortisone decreases inflammation and itchiness, and the tea tree oil is soothing.
Q: Can you use it on chafing?
A: It's great for chafing-lots of folks use it just for that.
Q:Does it work on bee stings?
A: Yes! In fact, just had a patient in yesterday with wasp stings buying it for a second time.
And the winner (chosen randomly) is MCM Mama, congrats! Email me your address at amandamorris1121 at gmail dot com and I'll have your bottle mailed to you.
I can only vouch for the product for sunburn, and while I love you all dearly I refuse to purposefully chafe just to review a product...but the next time I have unintentional chafing I will use Redneck Remedy on it and let you guys know how it works!
Since we have our tri on Sunday, I got this weekends long run in yesterday. It was a hot and steamy 8 miler, but felt better than any run has in a long time!! Isn't it funny that now I don't consider 8 miles to really be a "long run.":) Happy Thursday peeps!
