Rising cases of Dengu and Malaria in the city
Created by Updated on Oct 19, 2012
Hello, I read in the newspaers today about the rising cases of Malaria and Dengue in the city. More then 300 people in the city have been affected by dengue in a month's time. I have a five month old daughter. I am worried because very often I see mosquito bites on her body. Can we use mosquito repellent or Goodnight's mosquito spray to protect my baby? Please advice.

Hi Venesa. I do not think it is advisable to use any repellent or cream on your baby's skin. I feel they are too strong and may harm her delicate skin. The best option for me is the good old mosquito net and full sleeves nightdresses and night suits. Also, you may spray mosquito repellent spray in the room with her in another room. Mosquito bites are always a concern for me too as I have seen how a simple bite can trouble the little ones. In case of a bit, please use Calamine lotion immediately. It helps reduce the itching and swelling.
