- DO NOT to use more than 30% DEET on anyone.
- DO NOT to use aerosol spray insecticides in pressurized containers, as they can be inhaled and/or get into eyes.
- DO NOT to use repellent mixed with sunscreen, since reapplying sunscreen every few hours risks overexposure to the repellent.
Following all these precautions reduces risk, but does not eliminate it.
Your safest bet: The worry-free, chemical-free N’visible patch. This one-of-a-kind, vitamin-based, DEET-free protection is both safe and effective. Field-tested in Africa, it protects within 30 minutes, lasts up to 12 hours, and actually improves with continuous use. The reason: Mosquitoes hunt for CO2 which is masked by the patch. No creams, lotions, or sprays to deal with. Instead, simply apply the N’visible patch anywhere on the skin—arm, wrist, chest, hand—and you’re good to go, no fuss, no muss.
