By providing us with this information, we can develop a personalized plan for you and complete your appointment as quickly as possible. Before your appointment, please print and fill out the appropriate questionnaires. Contact us  today to schedule your consultation.

What You’ll Need to Prepare

We have more than 20 years of experience in treating patients with travel-related illnesses and injuries. Our goal is to prepare travelers so that they have safe and healthy travel experience. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of products that, depending on where you are traveling, could be vital to your health. These are fairly common products, and we will have further, more-detailed recommendations for your trip based on traveling, and your health information.

Picardidin

Picaridin is a new, high-strength insecticide that is a much safer alternative to DEET.

Unlike DEET, this spray will not harm any of your traveling gear or equipment.

Sawyer® Ultra-30™ Insect Repellent

This liposome-based product is the latest in insect repellents technology. Liposome allows the 30% DEET lotion to appear non-greasy, and with significantly less odor than traditional sprays. Liposomes are used to protect our skin from various chemicals and products, allowing the DEET to work as an insect repellent without posing any risk to your health. They also allow for a controlled release of DEET so it releases slowly over time for hours of protection.

Sawyer® Ultra-30™ Insect Repellent is:

  • Odorless After Application
  • Non-Greasy
  • Non-Staining
  • Sweatproof
  • Effective For Up to 11 Hours

Sawyer Permethrin® Clothing Repellent

Use Sawyer Permethrin® Clothing Repellent to protect yourself from biting insects. Not only does this product repel insects, but actually kills ticks, mosquitoes, and more than 55 other kinds of insects. Permethrin is non-toxic to humans, bonds to clothing without staining or damaging it, and a single application lasts for six washings.

When applied to your clothing, equipment, or tent, Permethrin will have “spatial repellency” against mosquitos, meaning that even if they swarm you they will not land on treated areas. Use with skin-applied repellents for the strongest protection.

Sawyer® Stay Put® Sunblock - SPF 30

This sunblock is unique because it can penetrate deeper layers of skin than traditional sunblocks. This makes for better protection, while allowing the sunblock to stay effective against activity to the surface of your skin, including rubbing, exposure to water, sweating, etc. You’ll remain cool while staying protected, as this sunblock’s bond to deeper layers of skin allows for sweat to pass through it easily.

Important Features:

    Waterproof

  • Sweat resistant
  • UVA/UVB protection
  • Bonding Base Formula: long-lasting protection in a PABA-free non-greasy lotion.

This foam and bottle combination is for use with Sawyer’s signature 0.1 micron absolute Hollow Fiber Membrane Filter.
