Mosquito repellent can be very dangerous. Experts told how to use them correctly so as not to harm health.
Certified repellents are safe when used correctly. First of all, they should not be allowed to get on the mucous membranes, but use only on open skin areas.
Also, don’t use those intended for open-air indoors.
It is noted that isn’t the remedy itself that is dangerous, but by-products.
For example, a mosquito coil shouldn’t be ignited in a room, as it releases combustion products that can accumulate in the body, provoke headaches and other unpleasant symptoms.
Toxicologists have also recommended placing fumigators away from the sleeping area at night to avoid reacting to their smell. “It is advisable to use chemistry away from the bed so that the maximum concentration of odor is further away.
You have to understand that people are of different sensitivities. Someone may have sensitivity to strong odors. That is, not to the drug itself, but to the pungent smell” – the experts concluded.
