Nabila Tapia in the hospital 1
The Nuestra Belleza Latina contestant revealed she had Zika with this photo. She had to be taken to the hospital with high fever.
She just had a baby 2
Although Zika is tough, she must be so happy to have caught it now and not six months ago. Tapia became a mom in May 2016. Just a few weeks ago.
What is the Zika Virus 3
According to the Centers for Disease Control, the Zika virus is transmited by the mosquito Aedes, the same one that can give you dengue and chinkungunya. A specific characteristic of this mosquito is that has white stripes on its legs and white spots on its back.
Use repellent 5
Mosquito repellents are the true and tried method to avoid being bit. Many of us, myself included, rather use a natural remedy first, but if you are going to a place where you already know that are lots of mosquitoes, please use it.
Vitamine B 6
Mosquitoes hate the smell that comes out of us when whe ingest vitamine B.
Long sleves 7
Long pants and sleeves are the best defense against mosquitoes. They also help to protect the skin from the sun. The best idea is to wear clothing made out of light and natural fabrics.
Avoid overheating 8
Mosquitoes love body heat and sweat.
Choose light colors 9
Mosquitoes also like dark clothing.
Check different creams and lotions 11
I swear by the Soft Original Bath Oil Spray de Avon. You can purchase it Avon for $24.
Anti-mosquitoes wearables 12
There are wearable products with natural repellents that you can have on you. My son does great with the product on the photo. He plays soccer and is never bitten when he is wearing one of those.This packet of three costs $5.99 at Target.
