How Safe Are Mosquito Repellent Stickers For Kids?
Generally, Mosquito Repellent Stickers come in the form of bandages which are laden with insecticides. The effectiveness of the patch reduces as the chemical gradually evaporates into the atmosphere and exhausted. Mosquito repellent bracelets and bands work on a similar principle and can be replenished with a small tablet.
These are portable mosquito repellent solutions and are similar to mosquito repellent lotions.
A variety of mosquito repellent stickers are available for babies and they generally contain the same ingredients as lotions. A patch should not be stuck to the clothes or the skin of the baby. They should be placed on an object close to the baby but far from the reach of the baby.
Patches containing picaridin or DEET should be avoided for kids younger than two months old. Most patches contain the essential oil which serves as an insecticide and as we mentioned earlier, you must be aware of how you use them as they can be potential allergens.
In some situations, these repellents spread various types of allergies. The repellents could give rise to some skin related problems. If these chemicals somehow enter into the delicate layer of eye cornea, they can be very harmful and irritating. This is because these repellents are made up of toxic chemicals. The repellents are dangerous to the skin and they sometimes do more harm than good.
Generally speaking, mosquito repellent stickers are safe depending on the ingredients. Make sure you always look at the label to determine the active insecticides used for the patch. Do not use these repellents for kids younger than two months of age.
While using insect repellents for kids, following due diligence need to be addressed:
- Do not use products that combine sunscreen with DEET which generally reduces the efficiency of sun protection factor (SPF). This implies that you may have to apply more sunscreen to give protection from sunlight. This is allowed for adults but for kids, it may overexpose them to DEET, which is harmful to their skin.
- Study the safety information instructions and label on the packaging of the repellent patches. This will let you know what was used in making the repellent and whether it is safe for the health of kids.
- Do not apply mosquito repellent around wounds and cuts as it may enter the body.
- Always keep a mosquito repellent and the outer packaging away from the reach of kids.
- Stop the usage of mosquito repellent immediately if you doubt that the baby is developing an allergy towards it.
