Lice Removal

Treatment for head lice is recommended for persons diagnosed with an active infestation. All household members and other close contacts should be checked.

Lotions and shampoos containing 1% permethrin (Nix) are an OTC option (but rarely kill all the bugs) They can be bought at the store without a prescription.

Head lice do not go away by themselves: treatment is necessary.

Head lice do not survive long if they fall off a person and cannot feed. You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money on housecleaning activities. Read Myths about Lice.

Prescribtion Medications are available through a doctors office.
