Can anyone recommend an insect repellant for eczma sufferers
We are going to Turkey next week and as we are by the river there will be loads of mozzies. Last time my DD (aged 8) got really badly bitten because due to her eczma she could not bear the repellent spray on her skin. She just used to scream because it stung so badly. I really dont want to go through that again.
Can anyone recommend an effective repellant suitable for eczma sufferers please?
Apparently if you take a high dose of Vitamin B it will repel insects, and also eat garlic. When you sweat the odors of these things come out and keep away the mozzies ... so I've heard, not tried it myself!
