permethrin 1% creme rinse
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am Dr.Kakkar (dermatologist). I have read you question and I have noted your concern.
All family members may use perlice 1% creme rinse (1% permethrin creme rinse). Follow the following 4 steps.
1. First of all, Shampoo and then air dry your hair.
2. Apply permethrin creme rinse over scalp as well as to entire hair shaft length.
3. Leave it on and allow it to act for 45 minutes and
4. Finally wash it off thoroughly with shampoo again.
Permethrin is ovicidal i.e kills the eggs as well as lice and therefore single application is sufficient.
