Safety Tips Using Insect Repellent:
Always read the entire label prior to application of the repellent.
Apply only a small amount of repellent, you do not need a lot for it to be effective. Do not use under clothing.
If you get repellent in your eyes, rinse them immediately with water.
Do not use the repellent on open wounds, or if your skin is irritated or sunburned.
Avoid breathing spray mists and never apply sprays inside a tent. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Do not use near food.
Spray on your hands first, then apply to your face and wash your
hands immediately after.
Wash treated skin with soap and water when you return indoors.
Always supervise the application of insect repellents on children.
If you suspect that you are reacting to an insect repellent; stop using
the product immediately, wash treated skin, and get medical help.
When you go to the doctor, take the product container with you.


*Always apply sunscreen BEFORE applying insect repellent*
