Which mosquito repellent to use for a 9 year old child?

Jump to last reply

Travelling to Thailand for 4 weeks with my daughter in January and have done lots of reading up about mozzie repellents and am very confused about what can and can't be used on children. There are so many mixed messages about what is safe/percentages/natural/chemical etc etc... Confused.Com
I am planning on using Ultrathon 3M on myself which I believe contains 35% DEET but I am unsure whether this is okay to use on my daughter. Does anyone know if this is okay?
Also, is this okay to use everyday for 4 weeks? And how many times a day is it to be applied? Or if this is too high a percentage to use on children, then what should she be using?
Also, a bit off topic, but is it recommended to get rabies jabs and take anti malarials if we are going to be up in the mountains near Chiang Rai for a few days?
