Safety tips for using mosquito repellents

Always follow the application directions on the product label.

Some repellents shouldn’t be used on children under a certain age. Don’t use DEET on infants under 2 months old. Avoid using OLE on children under 3 years old.

Try to avoid getting the repellent near your eyes or mouth.

Only apply repellent to exposed skin and not under clothing.

Keep repellents away from any cuts, burns, or rashes.

When you go back inside, wash the repellent off your skin with soap and warm water.
