It perhaps also depends upon the complexity of the infection, it could take a day or more, however the single-dose treatment is often repeated after 2 weeks. This treats eggs that hatched since the first treatment.

The doc./pharmacist after examination of the infected could be a better person to advice, hope this helps?
