It’s getting to be “that” time of year again. The flowers are blooming. The birds are singing.. and the mosquitos have NO mercy! Before you know it.. you are outside enjoying the warmth and getting covered in bites (along with your little ones!) Don’t let that happen, parents! DON’T!
Bug spray, bug spray, bug spray! We understand the smell can be uninviting, but it is 2017 people! Brands now make insect repellent that smells decentl! Regardless.. use the stuff. Protect your child (and yourself!) Mosquitos can carry diseases like West Nile, Zika, Yellow Fever, Malaria.. and more! You never know what those little creatures may be carrying. Be safe and take care of them before they take care of you! Also if bit.. scratching can spread bacteria and lead to infection.
Just In Case..
If bites do happen.. try using a quick soother like aloe, honey or even toothpaste!! The south is no joke and neither is an itchy bug bite!
