Nix (permethrin): Nix- (permethrin lotion) apply to the head at bedtime and wash off in the morniing. Wash all your bedclothes and put them through the dryer, and vacuum your carpets.

Head lice: Tx of lice requires accurate identification of nits & lice. A pediculicide is usually used- OTC like Nix or RID or prescription meds like lindane or malathion. Work carefully through hair & remove individual nits. Purchase a special lice nit comb to aid you. Check for nits & remove as seen over the next 7 to 10 days. If there are nits after 7 to 10 days – a 2nd pediculicide tx may be needed.
