Parents have a variety of over-the-counter (OTC);~ op- tions for treating lice--many more their parents had--so selecting a product may feel overwhelming. Pesticide-free lice~ treatment Vamousse provides a look at the three most common types of lice treat- ment products found in the first aid aisle. Pesticide-Based Lice Treatments Traditionally, pesticide-based prod- ucts have been the most common lice treatments available. These products contain the active ingredients perme- thrin or pyrethrum, which are pesticides introduced more than four decades ago as pediculicides--OTC drugs to kill lice. With these products, the formula kills lice but does little to kill their eggs, mak- ing a second application necessary seven to 10 days later to kill newly hatched lice that were in the egg stage when the first treatment was performed. A big concern today is pesticide re- sistance. Researchers studying head lice across the U.S. have documented that strains of "super lice" exist in much of the country. As a result of having relied on the same chemicals to treat lice over decades, resistance has grown, leading to less consistent reliability of these pes- ticide-containing products. Pesticide-Free Lice Treatments This category of products is aimed at' addressing the pesticide-resistance challenge and providing a different ap- proach to ending an infestation. Within the pesticide-free category, there are two main types of products: pediculicides and combing facilitators. Pesticide-Free Pediculicides This newer generation of treatments emphasizes safe, nontoxic ingredients with the ability to kill lice, including su- per lice, without using the pesticides to which lice have become resistant. Often, these products include a Drug Facts box indicating that the FDA recognizes the active ingredient as a pediculicide--an OTC drug for the treatment of lice. Vamousse Lice Treatment is an ex- ample of a pesticide-free pediculicide. Vamousse is also proven to kill eggs, de- hydrating them with the treatment. This means that both the adult lice and their laid eggs are killed with the application Parents today can defend their kids frOm picking up lice at school. rather than needing to wait for eggs to hatch. Parents also get the benefit of in- gredients that are nontoxic and safe to reapply as needed, so there is no wait- ing period to fully end an infestation or quickly treat a reinfestation. Combing Facilitators Combing is the original method of ending a lice infestation (evidence dates back even to the time of Cleopatra!). Some products in the lice treatment section serve to condition the hair for easier combing, supporting the manual removal of lice. These products can be recognized by language about "loosen- ing the nit glue" or "eliminating lice and eggs:' For many parents, combing alone is a time-intensive, highly involved ac- tivity that may need to be repeated fre- quently to get complete removal, so they should be aware that these combing aids do not kill lice. What Parents Should Know The best way to identify a head lice infestation early is by doing regular head checks. If you find lice, check the rest of the family and alert pl/~ymates. With the range of treatments on the market, be sure to follow the directions carefully for the product you select as procedures vary based on the type of product. About Vamousse Lice Treatment At Vamousse, they know parents want to eliminate head lice quickly. That's why they're proud to offer fast, effective products for parents to con- trol lice and super lice with ingredients they can feel good about. Vamousse Lice Treatment kills both lice and eggs with the first application so kids and parents can get back to focusing on life--not the itchy effects of head lice.
