Allowed Or Not?
Tonight, I want to ask pregnant women whether or not to use magic chalk to get rid of head lice and there is no effect on the fetus when using the magic chalk. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Magic chalk is a type of insecticide whose function is to eradicate insects. For example, this product can be used to eradicate insects that often live in corners of the house, sticking to walls, or in other environments.
However, using this product on the scalp to get rid of head lice is not the right action. Contact between insecticides and skin for a long time is very susceptible to trigger irritation. This irritation can appear in a mild form, which is only in the form of itching and redness on the skin, but it can also be quite severe, such as causing the skin to feel hot, painful, swollen, peeling, so that it requires further medical treatment. Therefore, we do not recommend that you do this, especially if you are currently pregnant.
Head lice, although harmless, can make sufferers very uncomfortable. How could I not, a very intense itching due to the presence of skin on the scalp can make sufferers want to keep scratching their head, even causing injury. These lice are generally transmitted from one person to another as a result of physical contact, either directly or indirectly, for example by exchanging combs, headgear, towels, or sleeping mats.
You can treat your scalp in the following natural ways:
Wash your hair using a shampoo that suits your hair type. Comb your hair using a regular comb until it is smooth. Then continue to comb your hair using a serit (tight toothed comb). naturally as above, in the medical realm, eradicating head lice can also be done by administering anti-parasitic drugs, for example permethrin. However, before using this drug, you should check with your doctor first so that you can first evaluate your skin condition in general so that the risk of side effects can be minimized.
Hope it helps ..
