It’s important to use insect repellents safely and only use products that have been government approved, especially if you’re a pregnant women or child.
Also keep in mind the following:
- Always read the label of the insect repellent and follow the directions.
- Don’t spray the repellent directly onto the face, spray it into your hand first and then rub onto the face.
- Test a small area of skin first before applying to your entire body.
- Supervise the application of insect repellents on children.
