Hi Mulzy, we never leave home without it, take it on every holiday we go on, it definitely needs to make the packing list lol, the last time we went to Egypt, I think we had about 3 bites in total while everyone else was walking round looking like they had the chicken pox, just hope its as good this time round :)

I use Repel Lemon Eucalyptus. Doesn't use Deet so no stains or nasty smells. I get mine from Amazon

In my local shop it’s 50LE but good pharmacies like El Azaby are selling it at 90LE these days

Get a "RAID" plugin for your room.

Available for 50-60 Egyptian pounds in Pharmacies or shops, they work well - Mozzie do appear to like having a drop of the red stuff in the night.

50 / 60 EGP approx 2.00 - 2.25 English
