Elderly patients have weakened immunity and are vulnerable to severe outcomes of mosquito-borne diseases.[2-5]

  • Due to age-related decline in immunity, elderly people have increased rates of dengue haemorrhagic fever, severe dengue symptoms, hospitalization and dengue-related mortality.[2-4]

  • In adults with preexisting arterial hypertension or skin allergy dengue fever is 1.6 and 1.8 times more likely to progress to dengue haemorrhagic fever.[5]

  • In chikungunya, elders (e.g., > 65 years), and people with underlying medical conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease) are at risk of severe disease outcomes.[6]

  • Elderly people who contract malaria are prone to complications such as respiratory failure, renal failure, anaemia, and hyperparasitaemia.[7]

Your elderly patients need protection from mosquito bites when they are outdoors.

Goodknight’s 100% natural Fabric Roll-On provides superior protection from mosquito bites outdoors.

Your prescription has the power to protect.

Recommend Fabric Roll-On to protect your patients against the 3X higher risk of mosquito bites outdoors.[1]


  • Advise your patient to apply four coin-sized dots on clothes before stepping outdoors.

Fabric Roll-On is safe to use:
