What To Do About Head Lice
Parents naturally put their children first, constantly seeking information to keep their families nurtured and safe. But when it comes to head lice, they’re often confronted with conflicting guidance and misinformation—leading them to make potentially risky and ineffective treatment decisions. Among the hazards are serious health effects from repeated exposure to various pesticide remedies, treatment failures, lice resistance, and chronic infestations that make parents and children feel desperate and overwhelmed. The NPA advises parents to comb first, to discontinue the use of any treatment at the earliest sign of failure, and to avoid using other chemicals. Manual removal of head lice with a comb is the best option whenever possible.
NPA’s petition urges the FDA to acknowledge benefits of safe, manual, non-chem approaches with LiceMeister® comb for kids with head lice. FDA has reopened comment section.
