TREATMENT PROTOCOLS: HEAD LICE

Dr Greengood’s Lice Killer

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Important: Read warnings before use. Adults and children 2 years and over:

Inspect check each household member with a magnifying glass in bright light for lice/nits (eggs).

Look for tiny nits near scalp, beginning with back of neck and behind ears.

Examine small sections of hair at a time; unlike dandruff, which moves when touched, nits stick to the hair.

If either lice or nits are found treat with this product

While holding the spray bottle in one hand, back stroke your child's hair, so as to expose their scalp/skin.

With these areas exposed, mist the Dr Greengood's Lice Killer. No more than a mist is necessary.

Treat. Apply thoroughly to dry hair or other affected areas. For head lice, first apply behind ears and to back of neck.

Allow product to remain on head until dry.  Wash area thoroughly with warm water and soap or shampoo.

For head lice towel dry hair and comb out tangles.

Repeat the process until you have treated your child's entire head.

As you prepare to treat hair toward the front of your child's face, ask them to close their eyes and gently shield the eyes against excess mist with one hand and mist spray with the other. Allow to dry before rinsing.

Hold nozzle 10 to 12 inches from treated area.

Be sure not to spray their eyes directly. When wet use nit or fine tooth comb.

Remove lice and their eggs (nits). Use a fine-tooth or special lice/nit comb.

Remove any remaining nits by hand (using a throw-away glove. Hair should remain slightly damp while removing nits.

If hair dries during combing, dampen slightly with spray.

For head lice, after spraying the entire head, part hair into sections. Do one section at a time, starting on top of head.

Longer hair may take one to two 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 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/nits. Repeat combing if necessary.

Check daily for any lice/nits you may have missed.

Do not soak. Mist only

A second treatment must be done in t-10 days to kill any newly hatched lice.

If infestation continues, see adoctor for other treatments.

For children under 2, ask a doctor.
