BullFrog Mosquito Coast Sunscreen Insect Repellent w/SPF 30
If you’re shopping medical supplies online to help you prevent the transmission of the Zika virus, then you should definitely try BullFrog Mosquito Coast Sunscreen Insect Repellent with SPF 30. Did you know that this product is included in Consumer Report’s list of the insect repellents that best protect against Zika-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquito?
· Resists water for up to 80 minutes.
· Safely repels insects up to eight hours.
· Convenient 2-in-1 protection.
· Pleasant aroma.
· Available in 6 oz. continuous spray SPF 30 and 4.7 oz. pump spray SPF 30.
Why get a sunscreen and an insect repellent separately when shopping medical supplies online, when you can both in a single product? Bullfrog Mosquito Coast has the added perk that it is a spray – either continuous or pump. Additionally, this item is recommended by dermatologists and works very well. Some users wary of DEET-free insect repellants, but the convenient combination of sunscreen and bug repellant works great to give a quick spray in the morning and the can is portable to keep around for later re-application. Not only do you prevent mosquito bites but also sunburn.
Some users complain that the sunscreen isn’t as effective as the insect repellent. Most people agree that insect repellence and sun protection are equally effective, though it is true that repellent usually does not need to be reapplied as often as sunscreen.
According to the CDC, the EPA recommends the following when using insect repellents:
· Apply repellents only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label).
· Do not apply repellents under clothing.
· Never apply repellents over cuts, wounds or irritated skin.
· Do not apply to eyes or mouth.
· Apply sparingly around ears.
· Do not spray directly on the face. Spray on the hands first and then apply to the face.
· Do not allow children to handle or spray the product.
· When using on children, apply to your own hands first and then put it on the child.
· Avoid applying repellent to children’s hands because they often put their hands in their eyes and mouths.
· Use just enough product to cover exposed skin and/or clothing.
· Heavy application does not provide better or longer-lasting protection.
· After returning indoors, wash treated skin with soap and water or bathe, especially if the repellent is used repeatedly in a day or on consecutive days.
· If you or your child develop a rash or other adverse reaction, stop using the repellent, wash the it off with mild soap and water, and call a local poison control center for.
· If you go to a doctor, bring the repellent container.
