Lice treatment is often started with the direct visualization of the lice in any segment of its life cycle. If you look closer to the head, you will see that there are more nits than adults or nymphs.
Head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis), as we all know, are the parasitic insects that can make someone experience a terrible itch behind the ears and near the neckline. If you are among the 10 million cases of head lice in the US every year, don’t lose hope because there is always a way out of the lice problem.
Some of the treatments that are harmful to children and are too strong and can cause reactions are these below:
* Pyrethrins Plus Piperonyl Butoxide or Rid is a shampoo causing an allergic reaction in people who are infected with plant allergies. Twenty to thirty percent of the eggs stay behind viable after treatment hence second treatment is suggested in 7-10 days.
* Permethrin is among the most in demand, and perhaps most effective treatment for head lice. This is basically a cream rinse designed to leave a residue after rinsing. It kills emerging nymphs and so that reapplication is usually not needed. See the package for the possible side effects
* Lindane is the one used watchfully since it can fail for some patients because several cases of seizures in children have been reported along with its use.
* Malathion is perhaps among the most popular lice treatment solutions. This prescription lotion is simply applied to the hair, left to air dry, and washed off after 8-12 hours.
Home Remedies Just Don’t Work.
Drowning lice with mayonnaise or olive oil will not work either. Lice have a breathing system that is also protected by this hard exoskeleton. We have had people tell us, their child slept with a head of mayo for over 8 hours. This is a complete waste of time!
There are people who give advice online to put kerosene and mouth wash on your child’s head. THIS DOES NOT WORK, AND IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS IN EVERY WAY! Do NOT put these types of products on your child’s head. It can burn their scalp, their eyes, and cause hair loss.
