Does Lysol Kill Scabies
We have been treated for scabies. Will Lysol kill the mites on hard surfaces? Also, once treated, how long do we need to change our bed linens daily?
Lysol not effective: Scabies is a tough condition to treat since it infects close contacts with varying symptoms and tends to recur from decontamination of untreated people or fomites (infected house hold items). For this reason, simultaneous treatment of all potentially infected personnel is recommended, along with laundering of linen, clothing and towels etc in hot water cycle with each treatment cycle.See 1 more doctor answer
Takes more than that: If you have scabies it can require a fair effort to get rid of it. First, you and all the members of your household will need to be treated. Ivermectin is an effective medication for treating scabies. Medications prescribed by your health care provider are usually needed to treat scabies. Creams include: Permethrin 5%, benzyl benzoate, sulfur in petrolatum, and crotamiton. Second, you will have >.
Unlikely: Are you asking if you can treat scabies on your skin with Lysol?
No. The 5 kinds of: Botulism are: Foodborne, from foods that contain botulinum toxin; Wound infection; Infant & the rare Adult, from ingesting spores of Clostridium botulinum & Iatrogenic, from Botox overdose. Do not give honey, raw or undercooked foods to infants < 12 mos. The bacterium can live on cleaned carpets, floors & countertops; spores, in dust & soil. See: cdc.

How dangerous is saturating your skin with lysol spray to kill germs, blatantly ignoring the warning?
Why risk it?: There are appropriate skin cleansers for a variety of purposes, such as those routinely bought in the grocery/pharmacy and those prescribed by physicians such as for helping acne. Lysol is designed for cleaning non-living surfaces and should not be used as a skin cleanser. Human skin is not a counter top.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Topicals are not worth discussion. ORAL antivirals are very effective when dosed correctly. They are very safe, even with neutropenia and colon cancer. Depending on your history you may take a large dose at first symptoms of attack (prodrome) or a smaller daily dose to prevent symptoms. A lip balm including sunscreen also helps reduce attacks. Best result with a dermatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
To kill Norovirus...: ...use a chlorine bleach solution with a concentration of 1000–5000 ppm (5–25 tablespoons of household bleach [5.25%] per gallon of water) or other disinfectant registered as effective against norovirus by the Environmental Protection Agency. According to its label, Lysol Disinfectant Spray also kills norovirus and rotavirus. However, Lysol® wipes and Chlorox® wipes do not. Ref. CDC
Maybe but no studies: Probably, but the information from osha about managing blood born pathogens does not include these products for cleaning. Professional lysol is appropriate for hep a, but not listed for b/c or hiv. The appropriate approach is to use bleach, but not as wipes, instead as a bleach solution. And use gloves and other personal protection devices. Here is the link from osha: http://1.Usa. Gov/mgjiw5.
Can rubbing alcohol kill norovirus on surfaces? I'm hearing regular cleaners like lysol aren't effective against this strain.
Chlorine is best: The new strain causes a more virulent illness, but there is no evidence that it is harder to kill on surfaces. Chlorine bleach is what is most recommended - http://www. Michigan. Gov/documents/guidelines_for_environmental_cleaning_125846_7.Pdf.See 1 more doctor answer
Can you kill herpes simplex virus by anti bacterial wipes or wet ones after an hour 2 after an encounter? I know lysol does
Don't count on it: Have you been exposed? Herpes 1 or 2? The only sure way to avoid herpes is to avoid contact. Possibly oral Acyclovir or valcyclovir will reduce infection rate significantly. Condoms help but are not completely protective. The traditional solution to this problem is to find the right partner and limit sex exclusively to this one person forever. Magic wipes are not the answer. Lysol will not help yo.See 1 more doctor answer
