ADVICE TO AVOID MOSQUITO BITES
- Avoid going out from dusk to dawn.
- If we have to, wear clothes with long sleeve and long pants to cover most of the body and to avoid the dark colors since these attract the mosquitoes. To obtain an extra protection, impregnate the clothes with permethrine to prevent the mosquitoes from stinging across the clothes.
- Use a repellent with DEET for the skin.
- Always use a mosquito net, no matter whether you spend the night outdoors or in a building. Even if accommodation is in hotels or modern buildings, it is necessary to maximize precautions by installing a net around the bed. It is recommended to use a net impregnated with deltamethrine to repel mosquitoes and avoid stings through the network.
In case they have already stung you, avoid scratching to prevent infections. Use an antihistamine and a calming lotion.
