Insect Repellents Can Actually Kill You!

By Maria Rivera

There are a lot of questions surrounding the effects of insect repellents on your health. People have misconceptions about them and are often misled by the false claims by the major advertisers about their toxic products. One debate would be on which varieties of insect repellents are safe and sound to use on your infant. Most say that identical repellents are usually applied by grownups. Another would be that repellents that contain as many as thirty percent DEET or picaridin, once your infant is two months old should be used. And lastly, natural items and bug repellents that are DEET free and safer to use on your infants.

Yet another suggestion that we noticed on these baby sites was just about funny. Here is one instance: “Dressing up your infant in light-colored clothing that protects as much skin as you can will help guard him from insects. Steer clear of bright colors or flowery designs.” So, in the summer, dress your infant in uninteresting, full length clothing? I don’t think so. As an alternative, let your kid be cool & homey in the most current fashion and use natural, valuable insect repellent. Keep the insects and the chemicals apart for sure!

A lot of people are very concerned about what type of insect repellent they can actually put on their child. Most of them are actually safe to use for your children. If you think back to the permethrin that we treated clothes with, permethrin is actually the active ingredient in children’s shampoo that is used to treat for head lice, so that can be actually applied directly to a child’s skin. The family deet products are also very much safe for children? I don’t think so. Even he center for disease control, and the EPA both say that you can apply deet to a child after two months of age? Are you kidding me? They are giving such false opinions.

Bear in mind that organic insect repellent alternatives are out there and have turned out to be increasingly more efficient. A number of of them have to be reapplied each and every 20 minutes or so, while others last up to 12 hours. Constantly read the label, but for the most part, you can safely use on skin, clothes, furniture, etc. to push away insects. Some are even so successful they kill insects on contact. There are a lot of natural insect repellent that are safe to use and are as effective. Go ahead and try a sample bottle today and experience the difference it can do to your health and wellness.

Here are some important pointers for using repellents that consist of DEET or picaridin. First, apply repellent occasionally to your baby’s exposed skin, not necessarily to the skin underneath his clothing. You shouldn’t put insect repellent in close proximity to your little one’s eyes or mouth, and prevent injuries and skin irritations. In addition, you should not put repellent on your baby’s fingers, for the reason that they’ll unavoidably find their way into his oral cavity. Wash off the repellent when you come inside, and launder your infant’s clothing right away. Next, never apply repellents in enclosed areas or close to food. In case your newborn develops any type of allergy while using the repellent, just completely wash it off and call a medical doctor right away.
