While standing in an outdoor environment, the pregnant woman depicted here, was in the process of applying a mosquito repellant to any exposed skin. 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. Here, after having sprayed the repellent into her hand, i.e., see PHIL 20522, she was now applying it to sensitive areas such as her face and neck. You’ll also note that this soon-to-be mother was dressed, so as to cover her exposed skin, thereby, hiding it from the bite of hungry mosquitoes. See PHIL 20521, for another view 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.”
