Keep Your Kids Safe
Keeping children safe from mosquito bites and Dengue is the primary concern for all parents.
The entire Odomos range has been proven to prevent mosquito-borne diseases such as Dengue.
Apart from its cream, spray, gel, and roll on variants, Odomos has also introduced Odomos bands and patches, using innovative technology. These new variants are gaining popularity and have won many accolades from various health associations around the world.
Besides the regular use of Odomos, given below are some other precautions that can be taken by parents to keep their kids and family safe:
- Dress up your kids in long sleeves shirts and full pants. Choose a light fabric to cover their bare legs and arms. Remember, mosquitoes are attracted to bright colours, so avoid it. These factors are more important when it comes to outdoor mosquito protection.
- Dengue is caused by mosquitoes that are active during the day. When in schools, kids tend to play in the grounds and hence are more prone to a Dengue attack then. Protection is of utmost importance during this time of the day if you have mosquitoes in your house.
- Mosquitoes remain active in still areas where there is no wind or air. So, a moving fan at full speed would deter them from coming anywhere close to your children.
- A natural way of combating mosquitoes is through plants that act as repellents. Plant marigolds around your patio area and places where children play. Marigolds are a natural insect repellent. Besides Marigold, lemon grass is also a natural repellent. However, through these plants help but they do not completely repel mosquitoes.
- Light citronella candles on your porch or patio in the evenings when the family is out. This will reduce the mosquito bites tremendously and will protect your children when outdoors.
- The main thing that causes the infection to spread is scratching the mosquito bite. Children get irritated and tend to scratch it or make the infected area worse. Make sure to trim your child's nails as this will keep the bite from becoming infected if he or she scratches it.
- Mosquitoes breed in still water. Take a look around your yard and get rid of any useless water whether in pots, pools, buckets etc.
