Question: my daughter will be 11 in october…she will be going on a trip with her camp next week and the camp is suggesting to bring bug spray. ..I am not a fan of bug spray. What do you recommend?

Answer: We don’t recommend routine use of bug spray, but if a child is going to be in a place where bugs/mosquitos/flies are abundant, it is a good idea. Go to our home page and check out the symptom checker for insect bites. At the very bottom is good info on bug spray usage. http://pediatricmed.alliedphysiciansgroup.com/…/insect…/
