Related: Pediatricians must promote safe, effective insect repellent use

AAP SmartBrief | Jun 29, 2016

Pediatricians need to bolster their awareness of safe and effective insect repellent use to advise parents on how they can protect their children from prevalent insect-borne infections such as the Zika virus and chikungunya, writes Dr. Bernard Cohen, member of the AAP Section on Dermatology Executive Committee. "The ideal insect repellent should have demonstrated efficacy against a large number of arthropods and adequate duration of effect, should be nonirritating and nontoxic, cosmetically acceptable, cost-effective, chemically stable, and should not stain or damage clothing," Cohen writes.
