Permethrin 1%
Lice Treatment Creme Rinse

THE FACTS OF LICE

Please read all information before using Nix Creme Rinse.

If you or a member of your household has head lice, don't panic. Keep calm.

Anyone can get head lice - it has nothing to do with cleanliness or poor hygiene. Head lice are treatable and very rarely cause serious health problems.

What are head lice?

What are nits?

Because nits (eggs) hatch in about one week, all nits must be removed to stop lice.

How do head lice spread?

How do you know if you have lice?

How do you prevent the spread of lice?

I. Inspect

If you suspect head lice - check. Head lice may be hard to locate because they avoid light. Nits are easier to see.

Figure
  • all household members should be checked by another person for lice and/or nits (eggs)
  • use a magnifying glass in bright light to help you see the lice and nits (eggs)
  • use a tool, such as a comb or two unsharpened pencils to lift and part the hair
  • look for tiny nits near the scalp, beginning at the back of the neck and behind the ears
  • small sections of hair (1-2 inches wide) should be examined at a time
  • unlike dandruff, nits stick to the hair. Dandruff should move when lightly touched.
  • if either lice or nits (eggs) are found, treat with Nix Creme Rinse
Figure

II. Treat

  • wash hair with a shampoo without conditioner. Do not use a shampoo that contains a conditioner or a conditioner alone since this may decrease the activity of Nix. Rinse with water.
  • towel dry hair so it is damp but not wet
  • shake the bottle of Nix well
  • completely saturate the hair and scalp with Nix. Begin to apply Nix behind the ears and at the back of the neck.
  • keep Nix out of the eyes. Protect the eyes with a washcloth or towel.
  • leave Nix on the hair for 10 minutes, but no longer
  • rinse with warm water
  • towel dry hair and comb out tangles
  • if live lice are seen seven days or more after the first treatment, a second treatment should be given
Figure

III. Remove Lice/Nits

Treatment kills lice but does not remove the nits.

  • remove nits by combing the hair with the special small tooth comb provided. Remaining nits may be removed by hand (using a throw-away glove), or cutting the nits out.
  • use the nit comb provided and make sure the hair remains slightly damp while removing nits
  • if the hair dries during combing, dampen it slightly with water
  • part the hair into 4 sections. Work on one section at a time. Longer hair may take more time (1-2 hours).
  • start at the top of the head on the section you have picked
  • with one hand, lift a 1-2 inch wide strand of hair. Get the teeth of the comb as close to the scalp as possible and comb with a firm, even motion away from the scalp to the end of the hair.
  • use clips to pin back each strand of hair after you have combed out the nits
  • clean the comb completely as you go. Wipe the nits from the comb with a tissue and throw away the tissue in a sealed plastic bag to prevent the lice from coming back.
  • after combing, recheck the entire head for nits and repeat combing if necessary
  • check the affected head daily to remove any nits that you might have missed
Figure

IV. Clean home and personal items

After using Nix Creme Rinse, it is very important to clean personal items and your home to prevent the spread of lice. Nits may live away from the human head for about 7-12 days. Lice may live away from the human head for about 1 day.

  • all personal head gear (hats, hair ribbons, etc.), scarves, coats, towels and bed linens should be washed in hot water (above 130°F), then dried in the dryer using the hottest cycle for at least 20 minutes
  • personal combs, including nit combs, and brushes should be soaked in hot water (above 130°F) for at least 10 minutes
  • personal articles such as clothing, bedspreads, blankets, pillows or stuffed animals that cannot be washed should be dry-cleaned or sealed tightly in a plastic bag for a period of at least 4 weeks. Items should be taken out of the plastic bag outdoors and shaken out very hard before using again.
  • for anything you cannot wash, dry-clean or store in a plastic bag, spray with Nix Lice Control Spray.
  • vacuum everywhere. Vacuum all carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture and car seats that may have been used by infested household members.
