Using Permethrin in Bangkok, Khoa Sok, Krabi, Malaysia, Singapore

Jump to last reply

Shortly, I will be taking a small group tour that includes Bangkok, Khoa Sok, Krabi, Penang, Koala Lampur, Melaka and Singapore.

I am concerned about the Dengue fever outbreaks in these areas.

Is it worth it to treat my clothes with Permethrin?
I also plan to take a DEET 40% spray, Ultrathon mosquito net and wear long clothes.

Having a cat, I have read about it how toxic it is. My cat is a licker. I live in an apartment so treating clothes can be a challenge. Also, if clothes treated with Permethrin rub against other items, which I am sure that they will, I am concerned. I feel so neurotic. But, I don't want to to take a chance on either end.

Any suggestions on how to keep the mosquitoes out of my hair?

Thank you so munch in advance for your help.

Keep the karma...

S.O.S.
