Suntan lotion/insect repellent

So I'm at a resort for the first time since being implanted and I find myself concerned about suntan lotion or insect repellent causing damage to the processor. I remember back in the day I used to fight forest fires and Muskol insect repellent used to melt plastic. Of course I'm not planning on applying anything on or spraying directly on the processor but I'm curious if there are any approved or verboten of these recommended? Did a search and didn't find anything mentioned here...

i am not aware of any insect repellent that would be better than any other. One option is to buy ear gear. These cover the part of the processor that sits on your ear. It wouldn't necessarily protect the coil. I'm sure if you wipe off the coil and processor every once in a while, that would be sufficient. I wouldn't recommend spraying while you have the processors on
