Is picaridin-based mosquito repellent (aka icaridin) readily available in Thailand? I'm allergic to deet and have found picaridin very effective, especially at a 15% concentration. Should I pack enough for my 30-day trip or plan to buy some there? Thanks.
Sorry no. I don't really look at names. Mozzie sprays are usually made for specific areas and one spray made for one area might not work so well in another area. All the 7/11s in Thailand sell mozzie spray. There are some without deet. My skin doesn't like deet either. Mozzies arent that bad anyway. Unless you are hanging around beaches and canals around dusk you will hardly notice them.
The best i have ever found is a brand called Herbal Armor also Campsuds you can wash your clothes with. Look it up on the internet. Not sure if its sold in Thailand.
