Instructions

Inspect

    • Examine each household member with a magnifying glass in bright light for lice/eggs (nits)
    • Look for tiny eggs (nits) near scalp, beginning at the back of neck and behind ears * examine small sections of hair
    • If either lice or eggs (nits) are found, treat with this product

Treat

    • Apply thoroughly to dry hair or other affected area. For head lice, first apply behind ears and to back of neck
    • Allow product to remain for 10 minutes but no longer
    • Use warm water to form a lather, shampoo, then thoroughly rinse
    • For head lice, towel dry hair and comb out tangles To Remove Lice and Their Eggs (Nits)
    • Use a special lice/nit or fine-toothed comb (included). Remove any remaining eggs (nits) by hand, using a throwaway glove
    • Hair should remain slightly damp while removing eggs (nits)
    • If hair dries during combing, dampen slightly with water
    • For head lice, part hair into sections. Do one section at a time starting on top of the head. Longer hair may take 1 to 2 hours * lift a 1- to 2-inch wide strand of hair. Place comb as close to scalp as possible and comb with a firm, even motion away from scalp
    • Pin back each strand of hair after combing
    • Clean comb often. Wipe eggs (nits) away with tissue and discard in a plastic bag. Seal bag and discard to prevent lice from coming back
    • After combing, thoroughly recheck for lice/eggs (nits). Repeat combing if necessary * check daily for any lice/eggs (nits) that you missed
    • A second treatment must be done within 7 to 10 days to kill any newly hatched lice/eggs (nits)
    • If infestation continues, see a doctor for other treatments

Head Lice

    • Head lice lay small white eggs (nits) on the hair shaft close to the scalp
    • Eggs (nits) are most easily found on the back of the neck or behind the ears
    • Disinfect hats, hair ribbons, scarves, coats, towels and bed linens by machine washing in hot water [above 54 C (130 F)], then using the hottest dryer setting for at least 20 minutes
    • Items that cannot be washed, dry cleaned or stored may be sprayed with a product designed for this purpose
    • Soak all combs and brushes in hot water [above 54 C (130 F)] for at least 10 minutes * vacuum all carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture, and car seats that may have been used by affected people

Pubic (Crab) Lice

    • Pubic (crab) lice may be contracted by sexual contact
    • Sexual partners should be treated simultaneously to avoid reinfestation
    • Lice are very small and look like brown or grey dots on the skin
    • Pubic (crab) lice usually cause intense itching and lay small white eggs (nits) on the hair shaft generally close to the skin surface
    • Pubic (crab) lice may be present on the short hairs of the groin, thighs, trunk, and underarms, and occasionally on the beard, eyelids, and mustache
    • Disinfect underwear by machine washing in hot water [above 54 C (130 F)], then using the hottest dryer setting for at least 20 minutes.

Body Lice

    • Body lice and their eggs (nits) are generally found in the seams of clothing, particularly in the waistline and armpit areas
    • Body lice feed on skin then return to clothing to lay their eggs (nits)
    • Disinfect clothing by machine washing in hot water [above 54 C (130 F)], then using the hottest dryer setting for at least 20 minutes
    • Do not seal clothing in a plastic bag because eggs (nits) can remain dormant for up to 30 days
