Avoiding mosquito bites is the best form of
prevention. The mosquitoes that carry the microscopic worms usually bite
between the hours of dusk and dawn. If you live in or travel to an area
with lymphatic filariasis:
Sleep under a mosquito net.
Wear long sleeves and trousers.
Use mosquito repellent on exposed skin
between dusk and dawn.
Take a yearly dose of medicine that kills
the worms circulating in the blood.
