Tiger Balm Mosquito Repellent
Female mosquitoes need human blood to develop fertile eggs hence their daring buffet feast on us humans thousand times bigger than them. A pierce through your skin will leave an itchy red welt and possibly even a serious illness.
At only 3 weeks old, poor Ayden had his first encounter with the notorious Ms Mosquito.
FOUR bite marks. FOUR! My poor baby. I learned it the hard way – always use repellents for infants less than 1 year old because they cannot bat the insects away *as can be seen in the picture above*
That was 8 months ago. Back to present, the raining season is back and that means mosquitoes are out on the loose again.
We went to the pharmacy to grab a couple of mosquito repellents. I wanted to tell Ethan to get the Tiger Balm mosquito repellent as it is a well-known brand with strong credentials but before I manage to say anything to him, he already got hold of them because according to him they have a very cute picture on the box.
Do you see the cartoon picture of that guy and girl? That attracts Ethan to get these Tiger Balm mosquito repellents! LoL! We bought both the mosquito repellent spray and patch as we need to use both on different occassions. Let me tell you now…
Ethan’s school has given out notice that there is dengue outbreak recently. Ethan attends taekwondo in the school early Saturday mornings and got bitten by mozzies many a times.
He is not allowed to paste the mosquito repellent patch on his taekwondo uniform so I got him the spray type for him to spray all over. Don’t even ask me why his belt is tied that way. This boy of mine is macam-macam wan…
Mosquitoes can smell their dinner from an impressive distance of up to 50 meters. I like to camouflage or rather replace that tentalising dinner aroma with something that repels mosquito instead so I always get Ethan to use the mosquito repellent patch.
He is very proud to have that patch on him, telling his friends in the playground that it is his ‘Ultraman’ light! Blink! Blink!
I use it too. It is recommended to use 2 patches for adults and 1 patch for children.
It is even suitable for use on babies as it is deet free. Deet is the most common ingredient in insect repellent but deet can act as an irritant if you must know; in rare cases, it may cause severe epidermal reactions. So I always opt for deet free insect repellent for babies.
NOW he listens la…
A patch a day keeps the doctor away :)
Shh… don’t wake the baby now.
