Treatments For Head Lice
Ask you local GP or nurse what the best treatments are in your area as some treatments can be resisted by lice over time. If you do not have the luxury of seeking professional advice then you have options of insecticide and non-insecticide treatments, at different costs. Don't always opt for the cheapest of treatments though as they may not give the best results. Check on trusted medical sites and forums for the latest head louse treatments before purchasing - asking friends and family is also a good idea. As stated above, non-insecticides may be the best option (certainly for young children, pregnant women and those with skin irritations such as dermatitis or eczema, or asthma) initially, but insecticide based treatments may be necessary if the natural products do not work. Things to remember when using head louse treatments such as lotions, creams, liquids and shampoos are: be generous with the solution, avoid the eyes and mouth, thoroughly cover the scalp and massage in, keep away from others until the first application is completed, apply a second application, use a comb, fingers of tweezers to extract any remaining nits, follow instructions, treat everyone at the same time and don't panic!
It is worth always applying a second application to the head seven days after the first, as any eggs that may have hatched during that time, will need to be dealt with. Not all treatments kill off the eggs, so for thoroughness ensure these are targeted too and avoid re-infestation. Avoid non-proven treatments as they may waste your time, effort and money. Some suggest alternative lice treatments such as covering your head with mayonnaise for the night but this may just cause discomfort and make you wake up hungry. Prevention would be great, but there is little evidence that lice repellents work - the best prevention methods would be to not share combs and brushes or hats, avoid head to head contact, regularly perform checks for head lice and to act at the first sign of a problem, ensuring everyone that has been in close contact is also checked immediately. Bedding and clothing can also be washed as lice treatments but head lice are not meant to be able to survive away from a host for very long, so again this isn't confirmed as necessary (may be a good precaution though and encourage a good nights sleep).
