Dangerous Lice Treatment Ingredients to Avoid

   

When your child is suffering from a head lice infestation, it can be very uncomfortable. He might continuously scratch the head and cause it to wound or bleed. As a parent, all you would want is to prevent your beloved kid from discomfort and therefore, you would just want to get something very effective against head lice.

For many years, shampoo against head lice has been used by many parents to treat an infestation problem. However, it is just nowadays that people are looking more carefully as to what is really in these products and wondering if these are really safe for kids. The sad thing is, many

The sad thing is, many report that these products are not anyways 100% effective in dealing with a lice problem. Worse, they contain toxins that are known to be bad for the human body. In fact, the effects might be worse on your kid, as they are normally more sensitive to toxins. There is nothing wrong with buying head lice shampoo, but as much as possible, skip these dangerous ingredients:

Lindane  is a neurotoxin that is normally used as a pesticide. It has been linked to cancer and is capable of causing harm to the nervous, hormonal and reproductive systems. Unfortunately, it can be found in many lice treatment products. Lindane is banned for certain uses but it is still allowed in these types of products. It also tends to linger in the environment and may be passed on through the food chain.

Malathion This is a nerve gas derivative that is also popular in fighting insects. It is considered to be safer than lindane but is still dangerous as it interferes with the nervous system. It triggers asthma and affects the normal balance of hormones in the body. Worse, it is easily absorbed by the skin so when it is used against lice, you can just imagine it getting absorbed by your child’s body easily.

Pyrethroids Composed of permethrin, pyrethrin, and many others, these are synthetic pesticides that are toxic to the immune system and the thyroid. Some have been banned from food production, but they are still found in lice products, specifically sprays used for homes and schools. They have been marketed as safe because they are produced from chrysanthemum flowers, but they are already chemically engineered and are more toxic.

These are just some of the dangerous ingredients in the popular lice shampoos and treatments. In fact, using them might bring worse consequences than the lice infestation itself. There are many studies that have shown that exposure to these chemicals leads to severe medical conditions.

Fortunately, there are alternatives. Natural treatment methods that do not have these chemicals can be used, though their effectiveness is also not guaranteed. To be safe and sure, use a fine comb. It is tedious and you would have to do it a few times, but you can get rid of the problem without requiring any other products.

Though your child will experience some discomfort, a lice infestation does not bring anything more than that. This means you do not have to worry about diseases. You can patiently and peacefully fight them with nothing more than a comb, and you will be rewarded for your hard work.

BACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST TO HELP PREVENT HEAD LICE

How To Prevent Head Lice


Back-to-school time generally means buying new clothes, shopping for school supplies and picking out the perfect lunchbox. Unfortunately, with the recent rise of “super lice”—a new mutated breed of head lice that have developed resistance to over the counter and even prescription treatments—it also means it’s time to put your guard up against the school yard’s tiniest bully: head lice.

A common misconception about head lice is that they only affect those who are unclean or unhygienic, but that’s really not the case, says mobile lice removal company Lice Care Solutions. “In actuality, they are equal opportunists and affect everyone, regardless of hair type or how often you bathe.”

Head lice are highly contagious. The Center for Disease Control estimates that between 6 and 12 million children between the ages of 3 and 11. Of the 50 states, 48 of them have reported a mutated breed of “super lice” that is resistant to medical treatment.

To ensure that you and your loved ones stay lice free, here’s a quick checklist for you and your child to follow:

  1. Don’t share items that come into contact with the scalp, like brushes and combs, hair accessories, towels, hats and helmets, headscarves and headphones.
  2. Put long hair up or into a ponytail or braid. Lice cannot jump or fly; instead, they move about by latching onto hairs or threads and crawling from thread to thread. When hair is put up and out of the way, lice are not able to grasp onto it.

  3. Avoid games and activities that include head-to-head contact, since they provide easy opportunities for lice to crawl from one head to another.

  4. Keep personal belongings separate. Shared places like closets, drawers, lockers and common clothes hooks can create additional opportunities for lice to crawl from one clothing item to another.

  5. If you suspect that you or a loved one is infested with head lice, seek treatment immediately. Head lice are highly contagious and if not treated properly will quickly spread to others.
