View Full Version : mosquito repellent

I live in an area with my mosquitoes. Is it safe for someone with Lupus to cover themselves with mosquito repellent? They contain deet. Are there special brands or not to worry? thanks

Don't know the answer to that one.... :scratchchin:

For me, I have never had to use mosquito repellant once since I was diagnosed with Lupus. For some reason, the mosquitos don't bite me at all. They can be all around driving everyone else crazy, but they seem to avoid me.

I always figured it must be bad blood...guess they don't like the taste. Suits me just fine....I've enjoyed 27 years without a single bite.

I think you should use skin so soft from avon. It keeps mosqitos away does not stink as bad. I also would avoid aresol sprays. They always make me feel bad. I think from inhalation in lungs. :yes:

I have never heard or read anything that precludes us from using mosquito repellent and/or deet :unsure:
So, I guess you can decide which one works for you or if using it causes you any problems.

Peace and Blessings

If it doesn't cause her to break out in a rash...I have used it some but I agree...skin so soft by Avon is great and doesn't smell as bad.
