Choosing an Insect Repellent for your Child

Mosquitoes, biting flies, and tick bites can make children miserable. While most children have only mild reactions to insect bites, some children can become very sick.

One way to protect your child from biting insects is to use insect repellents. However, it’s important that insect repellents are used safely and correctly.

Read on for more information from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) about types of repellents, DEET, using repellents safely, and other ways to protect your child from insect bites.

SHOULD I TAKE MY CHILD TO URGENT CARE?

 

A visit to urgent care may be tempting if your child “just has a sore throat” or some other minor issue, but please call us, your medical home instead. We know your child, have PEDIATRIC and ADOLESCENT expertise and are always happy to help! Don’t forget our walk-in hours too! https://bit.ly/2pQflnO

​Sometimes kids don’t wait for office hours to get sick or injured. So, what should you do for those times when your baby runs a high fever during the night or your young athlete hurts his wrist at a weekend practice? It happens. ​
