Description:Caption:
This image depicts a pregnant woman standing outdoors. She has just squeezed a small amount of sunscreen into her hand. If wearing insect repellent to prevent mosquito bites, you should apply sunscreen first and repellent second. Here, the woman is also wearing long sleeves to prevent mosquito bites.
Additional Information:
“Zika is spread primarily by the bite of Aedes species mosquitoes (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). The risk of Zika is of greatest concern for pregnant women, who can pass Zika to their developing fetus if infected during pregnancy. Always follow the product label instructions for repellents and sunscreens, and reapply as directed.”
