Summer time is a time to get together with family and friends, enjoy the day and each other’s company. It can also be a popular time for head lice in Dallas. Before you run out and grab that bargain over the counter treatment from the corner store, let’s look at what you need to know about lice treatment ingredients.
Over the Counter Treatments Aren’t Always Successful
Many over the counter treatments contain chemicals and ingredient that can irritate the scalp of your child and even potentially cause other health issues. Not only that, they aren’t always successful in eradicating both head lice and nits to free your child of these pests. Many of our Dallas clients attempt an at-home treatment only to have a negative experience before coming to Lice Lifters to fully address the outbreak.
Side Effects of Chemical Treatments
Treatments for head lice are generally considered safe and when used as directed. Some over-the-counter treatments can cause itching or mild burning caused by inflammation of the skin on the scalp in reaction to the ingredients in the treatment. Most products used to treat head lice are pesticides that can be absorbed through the skin.
Things to think about when considering a pesticide lice treatment also include if the person has asthma, if there are scratches or broken skin in the area that will be treated, if there are medications being taken that could interact negatively with the pesticides. Each of these circumstances could react negatively with an OTC treatment.
Lice Lifters worked with chemists to engineer an all-natural killing agent that blocks the airways of head lice and puts an end to live lice activity in 10 minutes or less. Our treatments are kind and safe for you and your family and they won’t have that harsh chemical smell that comes with other treatments.
