The pregnant woman depicted here, was in the process of applying a mosquito repellant to the instep of her right foot. Application of repellants will help to protect her from being bitten by a possible mosquito disease vector, and in turn, her unborn baby from a vector-borne disease including Zika virus. You’ll also note that this soon-to-be mother was dressed, so as to cover up exposed skin, thereby, hiding it from the bite of hungry mosquitoes. See PHIL 20522 and 20523, for two additional views of this lady’s repellant application activity.
“Most repellents can be used on children aged >2 months. Protect infants aged <2 months from mosquitoes by using an infant carrier draped with mosquito netting with an elastic edge for a tight fit. Products containing oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) specify that they should not be used on children aged <3 years. Other than the safety tips listed above, EPA does not recommend any additional precautions for using registered repellents on children, or on pregnant, or lactating women.”
