Safety Notice: Topical head lice treatments
Staying Safe with Head lice treatments
“Consumers should not be frightened or confused about treatment options in light of this recent safety notice. Rather, they should be aware that some products contain flammable and toxic ingredients with associated risks, and that there are effective alternatives to those products,” said Krista Lauer, Medical Director of Lice Clinics of America. “We understand that there are many reasons why a parent or caregiver may need to use a topical lice removal product, like the ones described in the safety notice. However, it is extremely important for those parents and caregivers to always read and follow the instructions carefully as those topical products may contain flammable ingredients. If any family is in a situation where these types of products are the only options available, then hair dryers or any other ignition source such as matches, lighters and candles must not be used near anyone during the treatment process.”
