Many people turn to the over-the-counter or prescription head lice removal remedies. But which ones are the best? Are they safe to use on my child's scalp? Why are there still bugs on my child's head after I used them? Unfortunately, most of these head lice treatments are difficult to use correctly, can be expensive when more than one treatment is necessary, and may contain compounds like malathion, lindane, pyrethrins or permethrin, whose safety has been called into question. Many parents use them, looking for a shortcut to removing the lice with minimal effort. Also, some of the products come with combs that are very ineffective for the job. Head lice removal is a tedious, time-consuming job when done correctly, and most parents don’t have the time, the skills, the tools or the desire to physically remove the lice, nymphs and nits that are on on the head.
