Hi Dr, I would like to know what Mosquito repellant is safe to use on my 8 month baby. Nets over her cot dont help and the poor little thing gets eaten continously.

I am not happy to recommend any of the mosquito repellants for such a young baby. The net is the best and there must be some problem with the way it is covering her which allows mosquitoes to enter.

Pigeon has a whipe that you can use for your baby. I use it for mine and it helps. It's difficult to find as not all shops have it. Get them at game

We also have the same problem. We tried everything.

The latest we bought was a mosquito net at cape union mart for R 350 and chicco also have a range of products (buy them at clicks...the that release a sound that keep them away) and at last for two weeks it stopped.
