Para Plus Aerosol Spray - Lice and Nits
Head Lice infestation is a common place condition, especially among school children. If your child is constantly scratching their head, their hair should be examined for Nits (known as Eggs) or Head Lice.
Head Lice start out as Nits / Eggs that stick firmly to the base of the hair very close to the scalp. They can vary in size and will be dark or light – depending on your child’s hair colour.
In 7 to 10 days the Nits will hatch into Head Lice which are around 2mm to 3mm long and feed on blood about 5 to 6 times a day.
Head Lice travel from person to person when 2 heads come close together and by sharing combs, hats, hairbrushes. Although Head Lice are not dangerous or disease carrying, the itchiness can be very distressing.
Head Lice are becoming more resistant to many treatments with one active ingredient, however because PARA Plus has two effective active ingredients, it gives you the advantage of a knock out combination.
In most cases PARA Plus will be effective within 10 minutes of treatment, knocking down Nits and Head Lice in one application. However a second application is recommended in 7 to 10 days to eliminate Head Lice which may have hatched in the intervening time.

Use a fine tooth comb to remove the dead lice.
