Allergic reaction to Deet Mosquito repellent – What is the cure?


I never really used Mosquito spray before and use almost daily for 3 weeks - now breaking out on the exposed areas. Tried baking soda, antihistimines, aloe vera, cocoa butter to no avail. How long to heal?

    Diluted Lemon eucalyptus - so does vinegar but with vinegar will smell like a dirty nasty thing that hasn't taken a bath in a week. - Hey I just guessed that caveman had natural repellent.

    Already had shingles. Stopped using DEET, took antihistamines and 1% hydrocortisone cream helped a lot. still have marks on back of legs that are senstive to sun.
