Sandfly repellant

by hymans Online Now Oct 22, 2003 at 1:40 AM

Me and my wife are going to Khao Lak in December and my wife is very sensitive to the sandflies so I was wondering if there's any good repellant or other insecticides to keep sandflies away when you're on the beach. Thanks for any reply!

    Hmm... had a nasty encounter with these critters on my last trip to Asia. Local advice leaned towards a coconut oil based lotion, if I remember correctly. I'll post more if I find out any more info. Good luck. They can leave nasty bites and considering I scar easily, it wasn't any fun! Happy trails! Bambi
