With the zika virus around, how should expecting women avoid or is there a need to use any mosquito patch? Which brand is ok for expecting mothers? Thanks.

Best to check with you doctor regarding which brand of insect repellent to use. Other tips for preventing getting mosquito bits are: - Remove sources of standing water to minimize potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes - Use window and door screens to prevent mosquitoes from getting into the house - Sleep under mosquito net to minimize chances of getting bitten by mosquitoes - Avoid traveling to countries with ongoing outbreaks (list of countries here: https://www.moh.gov.sg/content/moh_web/home/pressRoom/Current_Issues/2016/zika-virus.html)
