Permethrin is a suspected human carcinogen. DEET is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. It's considered safe enough to use on human skin (in low concentrations). A mixture of a permethrin-based insecticide and a DEET based one shouldn't be any worse than the permethrin one alone. We'd have to know more about what kind of risk you're talking about to give you a better answer than that.
