The Use Of Drugs For Head Lice?
, if for example using peditox is allowed to stand for an hour and then rinsed is it dangerous or not? and peditox, after you rinse it, do you still still smell it in your hair? please answer yes ..
Hello Monika, Thank you for the question.
Pedityox is a trademark of a drug containing 1% permethrin which is used to treat head lice. The recommended use of this product is to apply it to the hair and scalp after cleaning the hair with shampoo and then leaving it for 10 minutes. After that, rinse your hair and scalp with clean water and dry with a towel. This medication can be repeated 1 week later if you still find head lice.
You do not need to worry if you leave this medicine for 1 hour because if it is used to treat scabies / skanies, the permethrin drug must be allowed to stand for at least 8 hours. Therefore, there are no side effects that you need to worry about if you leave it for 1 hour and use of this drug is considered safe.
You can also use a serit comb (tight-toothed comb) to help lice head lice. Avoid contact or use other patient's items to prevent re-transmission. If you already use this medicine but it doesn't work, don't hesitate to consult with your doctor further.
I hope this helps.
