In Russia, to assist the Centre with lice "Lais Aywaille" this service. In drugstores various means, the cheapest and most effective of which is the hellebore water. There are shampoos, sprays, ointments. As an example, our site will lead some of them: "Nittifor" (there is a cream and solution), which displays the ectoparasites (lice and nits, fleas, scabies mites), being one of the most effective means; "Pair Plus" (aerosol); a full range of products for treating lice and nits «NIT FREE», protivobloshinye usual shampoo for cats and dogs (which are also in demand).

Folk remedies for getting rid of lice existed, exist and will exist. Their efficiency is approximately 90%. Of course, they can be used, but carefully, and be aware that:
- When using kerosene hair long time can not come to order. Kerosene is long washed off, spoils hair (they become sticky and dirty in appearance), difficult to comb;
- Vinegar dries hair, and the concentrated solution and can burn the skin at all. Vinegar kills the lice and has a disinfecting effect, but does not display the nits;
- "Dichlorvos" and similar tools are very toxic because of the organophosphorus compounds and the carbonates contained in them. You can get poisoned.
All this is supported by disadvantage ofOperation: after the application of any means needed to put on the hair plastic bag and wrap head with a towel - so designed to be worn for at least 2 hours.
After using any means to bebe sure to head to comb a special fine-toothed comb and remove each egg by hand. Combing will take a few days as to deduce nits uneasy. If your hair is long, they will have to cut at least to the level of the shoulders - it will be easier to comb out dead insects and eggs. In addition, to facilitate the procedure as possible, causing on hair balm, fish oil, olive oil or geranium oil, giving the "sliding effect". Olive oil also eliminates the parasites, and geranium oil even to the same anti-inflammatory action, heals wounds.

In a family where there was an infection of one man, it is necessary to examine all the inhabitants of the apartment, but not necessarily what someone else is infected.
Prevention of head lice
Main lice prevention tool -personal hygiene: regular body wash (at least 2 times a week), change of underwear and bed linen; Wash bed linen at high temperatures, proglazhivanie clothing hot iron, especially seams where lice usually lay their eggs.
Do not lend your comb.
Lice repels odor of tea tree and lavender, therefore, to ensure that they are not latched, should be applied to a droplet of fluid in the back of and behind the ears.
In order to avoid reinfection occurredpediculosis, our site encourages things that were used in the family (and mostly towels, hats, bed linens, clothing, having hoods and collars, soft toys), boil and use them within 2 weeks. Without the "host" the insect can survive a maximum of 7 days, the parasite out of the eggs takes place during the week, so a period of 14 days, is an indication of the desired rejection of the previously infected items if nit died. That is, during the term of the insect will die alone without food.
To check the presence / absence of lice shouldlight cloth comb head - will significantly once. There is another way - as I found out in itself lice a second time when bathing in the bathroom, rinsed hair in stagnant water - a few insects emerged.
Pediculosis - a fairly common phenomenon, as in children,and adults. You can be afraid of the disease, but do not need to be ashamed of it.
