Hi Asha, Please prefer odomas spray or use minimum 2 patches at back and front of tees. Few kids have very delicate skin, so avoiding direct application helps. You can use natural ways also.. can spray lill neem oil over clothes. Rather just sprinkle for fragrance. Stay good!!

Srotaswini, neem oils are easily available online or in markets. Also mixing equal amount of neem oil + coconut water act as natural repellent.

Thanks for reading Ms. Roy. You can make them wear full clothes for the time they are out of home like parks or evening walks. If the baby still feel uncomfortable try wearing linen light full sleeve clothes with covered footwears( you can avoid socks in such case. )
