Should a member of your family need treatment check other members of your family for live lice
with a detector comb and treat if necessary.

For Treatment of Head Lice
• Apply sufficient liquid to dry hair to ensure that no part of the scalp is left uncovered. Work
into the hair spreading the liquid evenly from the roots to the tips.
• Leave the hair to dry naturally in a warm but well ventilated room.
• After 12 hours, or the next day, if preferred, shampoo hair in the normal way.
• Rinse the hair and comb whilst wet to remove dead lice and eggs (nits) using a nit comb.
• Wash hands after application.
• The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.
For Treatment of Crab (Pubic) Lice
• Apply to the entire skin surface.
• Pay particular attention to all hairy areas including beards and moustaches. Avoid any other
areas above the neck.

usual manner.

For Treatment of Scabies

• In adults it may not be necessary to apply above the neck. If used in children under the age of
two years, a thin film of the liquid should be applied to the scalp, face and ears, avoiding the
eyes and mouth.
• Do not wash off or bathe for 24 hours. If hands or any other parts must be washed during this
period, the treatment must be re-applied to those areas immediately.
• Wash hands after application.
• The treatment should be repeated after 7 days.
