Excuse me, I want to ask under what conditions the virus can die ?, and is the mosquito repellent lotion able to kill germs or viruses? , thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Bayu,


Thank you for the question.

Anti-mosquito lotion, as the name suggests, is useful in preventing mosquito bites. This lotion is not effective in killing mosquitoes. There are many active ingredients that can be used in making mosquito repellent lotions, for example DEET, pyridine, IR3535, PMD, 2-undecanon, lemon eucalyptus oil, and so on. So far, the various active ingredients in this anti-mosquito lotion are not known to be effective in eradicating viruses that cause disease. In some sensitive people, skin contact with an anti-mosquito lotion can actually trigger inflammation, either due to allergies or infections, which are itching, redness, heat, blistering, scaling, swelling, peeling, and many other complaints.


The outbreak of a new Corona virus infection (COVID-19) does create its own concerns. Therefore, many people flocked to buy hand sanitizers to keep their hands clean. Because, through a virus-contaminated hand, this disease can spread from sufferers to other people. As a result, hand sanitizers are becoming increasingly rare and expensive.


You need to understand, that the use of hand sanitizers is only recommended to keep hands clean from viruses and microorganisms and other impurities in emergency cases, for example if clean water and soap are not available around you. Conversely, if there are sources of clean water and soap around you, then washing your hands properly will be far more effective in eradicating the virus in your hands. Therefore, you don't need to worry even though you don't have a hand sanitizer.


I hope this helps.
