Protecting your child against mosquito bites

As we all know mosquito has been the cause of malaria and this is probably the biggest concerns of parents travelling with youngsters abroad, particularly in tropical countries. When we went on holiday to the Philippines, my husband and I did a good job in preventing our child from getting bitten by mosquitoes by using clothes that covers her arms and legs especially at night time. I also make sure that she had an insect repellent on her skin; make sure you get a mosquito lotion that is suitable for your child’s age. You see, there isn’t an immunization against malaria , but doctors will be able to advice you or your child to take anti-malaria drugs however, anti-malaria drugs do not provide complete protection, so what you can do is just take extra precautions as what we did.
