Health Tip: Using Insect Repellent
Suggestions for safer use

(HealthDay News) -- If you're heading outdoors, especially during dawn or dusk, remember to protect yourself against insect bites.

The Environmental Working Group offers these tips:

  • Wear a long-sleeved shirt and long pants to keep bugs away.
  • You may want to use a DEET or Picaridin insect repellent.
  • But avoid using insect repellent excessively during pregnancy.
  • Avoid using oil of lemon eucalyptus or PMD during pregnancy.
  • Wash hands after applying insect repellent, and wash the repellent off when you come inside.
