So What’s the Big Deal with DEET Insect Repellent Anyway?
DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide) is pesticide that is effective in repelling insects like flies, mosquitoes, noseeums, and fleas. Not a bad thing when you consider the concerns of West Nile Virus or Malaria. Unfortunately, for many people with sensitive skin, DEET can cause hives, burning, redness, rash, and swelling. And high levels of DEET are suspected to affect the central nervous system, causing insomnia and mood changes. No thank you!
