What is Lyclear Head Lice Lotion And Comb?
This Lyclear Lotion works by effectively killing the head lice infestation in the hair and scalp. It works thanks to the two active ingredients, mineral oil and dimethicone. These ingredients help to suffocate and dehydrate the lice.
What is the cause of head lice?
Head lice are an insect that spread from person-to-person because of contact between heads, in particular, younger children are likely to end up with head lice. Besides contact, sharing of combs, brushes, hats, headphones, as well as towels can also contribute to the spread of head lice.
Who is this Lyclear treatment suitable for?
This treatment is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 2 and over. It should not be used by anyone who is allergic to any ingredients contained in the solution. Anyone using any other form of medication should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.
Can anyone pregnant or breastfeeding use this treatment?
As with many kinds of medication, it is recommended that anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding speaks to a medical professional before using Lyclear.
How should Lyclear Head Lice Lotion And Comb be used?
Use the comb to find any infestation in the hair. Anyone in the family who could be affected should be treated on the same day. To use the spray, spray it about 10cm from the hair and ensure that all of the hair is covered. Leave the solution on for 15 minutes. Wash the hair after using. Use the comb to remove any lice and eggs after treatment. Clean the comb after each use. Repeat the treatment after 7 days to stop the infestation from returning.
