    Has anyone ever used the skin so soft by Avon as a bug repellent? We live in the south and the mosquitos here are treacherous!! I just hate using bug repellent on my dd daily but there is no way that I can keep her in pants in our 100% humidity and almost 98 degree summers! She's already been attacked over the wknd on her ankles and the itching is miserable for my ladybug! I don't want to give her benadryl daily on top of her allergy meds. Help! Any remedies are gladly appreciated!
