Having a child who is allergic to mosquito bites makes it very hard to enjoy being outside. My 10 year old gets an allergic infection when he gets bit. And the kicker is he doesn't react for 24 hours.
He also has asthma, so its very hard to find a spray/lotion that he can use to keep the bugs at bay.
I was worried and excited to try this patch out. Worried that it wouldn't work or that there would be a strong odor that would kick is asthma into high gear. I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened that package. The smell is not over powering.
While I still can not trust any product 100% for my 10 year old, I am really happy to be able to use these for him. So far so good. I just opened a patch and stuck it in the middle of his back and another on his shorts.
My husband also used them while doing yard work and was bite free!
These will be added to our outdoor routines!
