In brief: Head lice
Licenex is a powerful, all-natural product that kills lice and their nits on contact.
No more combing through hair picking out individual lice and washing with chemical shampoos. Licenex can even be used as a spray for your furniture, and mixed with your laundry for your clothes and bedding, to give you a whole-house solution.

In brief: Not that fast
Tx of lice requires accurate identification of nits & / or lice.
A pediculicide is usually used- otc like nix (permethrin) 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.

Wash clothing or linens in HOT Water. Soak personal items like combs or brushes in HOT water for at least 10 minutes (or throw them out if this is an option). Vacuum floors, carpets, mattresses, upholstered furniture & your vehicles.

Malathion is flammable. So follow the safety instructions if you use this prescription.
