Fire Stopping 101

background element

Fire is an equal opportunity irritant! It doesn't say anything about you. Unless you decide to do nothing about it. Then you're either a masochist or a couple shrimps shy of a combo platter.


If you have any symptoms or even slight irritation use Fire in the Hole early and often because irritation can spread quickly. (or, go ahead and ignore it for a couple days, we'll have a few extra bottles of Fire in the Hole waiting for you.)


If the problem persists-put down the burrito and back away slowly.


If you're an athlete and you get the fire, try spraying Fire in the Hole before you exercise and after your shower. If you don't shower after you exercise, you've got issues that Fire in the Hole can't help you with.


Yes, most of us need to actually do something for a living that involves walking, carrying, driving or standing in the heat for hours on end. All of the above can cause the fire. And unlike carpal tunnel syndrome, it's not something most of us want to talk to our bosses about. Keep a bottle of Fire in the Hole nearby and use often during day to keep your workplace


When you travel abroad, you eat new foods, walk for miles, visit humid locations and rock the same pair of underwear for days. All of the above can start a fire you don't want to see in your vacation photos. Keep Fire in the Hole in your backpack next to your passport. You won't want to lose either of them.


Men and women have the same skin cells so it works beautifully no matter what plumbing you have. What's not equal is most women won't admit to the fire and most men talk about it during dinner.

Fire in the Hole helps stop the burn for other issues as well. Though it won't cure hemorrhoids it can help stop the burning associated with them.

And if you've read this far we might as well tell you that Fire in the Hole isn't just effective "down there". Yep, you guessed it. Fire in the Hole can help with any type of minor skin irritation that causes itching from eczema to insect bites and diaper rash to poison oak and ivy. Fire in the Hole is made to help heal skin anywhere on your body.


Sometimes the fire comes from real medical issues, which are no laughing matter. Fire in the Hole was developed by plastic surgeons for use in post-op environments to help speed healing and manage irritation from their procedures. In fact, the chief of plastic surgery at a prestigious Los Angeles hospital is one of our developers.
  • Anal itching also can be caused by the irritation of continuous moisture in the anus caused by frequent liquid stools, diarrhea, or escape of small amounts of stool (incontinence).
  • Moisture increases the possibility of infections of the anus, especially yeast, particularly in patients with diabetes mellitus or HIV.
  • Treatment with antibiotics also can lead to a yeast infection and irritation of the anus.
  • Psoriasis also can irritate the anus.
  • Abnormal passageways (fistulas) from the small intestine or colon to the skin surrounding the anus can form as a result of disease (such as Crohn's disease), and these fistulas bring irritating fluids to the anal area.



OK tree huggers, you're going to like this part. Fire in the Hole avoids hydrocortisone (a steroid hormone) used frequently in anti-itch applications because we feel that steroids are overused and, in the case of most minor skin irritations, unnecessary. In fact, Fire in the Hole uses the building blocks of life, amino acids, to naturally help heal irritated skin FASTER! There you have it. If you've read this far, congratulations.
