To stop and prevent future infestations, there is a very simple and safe remedy.
Do not use the poison prescription shampoos your doctor will give you. The poisons are absorbed into the scalp and can cause you harm.
Buy a bottle of Denorex with the ingredient “2 % coal tar.”
Shampoo head as normal, but do not rinse. Allow shampoo to stay on hair until at least 5 minutes have passed.
This does not kill the eggs, so the treatment must be repeated over next 2-3 weeks to kill any hatching lice.
When there is no sign of lice left, use the treatment once per week to avoid another infestation.
