Description

Lycear Creme Rinse is head lice treatment that works by killing head lice and their eggs. Head lice can be a troublesome pest, especially for children as they can be easily spread from person to person in places such as schools. Lyclear contains the active ingredient Permethrin which is an effective insectiside that can stop infestations and prevent spreading. The easy-to-use formula is simple to apply and can kill head lice and their eggs in 10 minutes.

What are head lice?

Head lice are tiny insects that can live in hair and feed on the blood from the scalp. If you catch head lice, they may make your scalp itchy and uncomfortable and due to their tiny size, they can be difficult to spot, until you have quite a few of them.. Although they are a nuisance, they do not pose a serious problem and are easily treated. Head lice and nits are common problem, especially for young children and their families as they are easily spread through head to head contact. Adult head lice typically grow to around 3mm in length and a typical infestation would consist of around 30 head lice, however it is possible to have more than 1000 lice in your hair, if the infestation is severe.

How do head lice spread?

It is a common misconception that head lice can only be found in hair that is dirty, but this simply isn’t true. Anyone can have a head lice infestation, but they’re more commonly found in young children, especially those who have long hair. Head lice can’t jump, fly or swim, so they can only spread through direct head-to-head contact with a person who has an infestation. It can take only half a minute for a head louse to crawl from one head to another. It is extremely unlikely to catch head lice from sharing objects such as hats, brushes, combs or pillows as head lice can’t survive for long once they are removed from your head as they no longer have a food supply and die.

What is the difference between head lice and nits?

Head lice multiply by attaching eggs to your hair with a glue-like substance, which the females excrete as they lay the eggs. Head lice eggs can hatch within a week and leave behind the empty white egg cases which are called nits. If you see nits in your hair, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you still have an active head lice infestation (live head lice in your hair), as the empty egg cases can remain stuck in your hair after the lice have been removed.

How does Lyclear treat headlice?

Lyclear contains the active ingredients Permethrin which belongs to a group of medicines called pyrethroids. It is an insecticide that is commonly used in a variety of ways to control insects and infestations. Permethrin affects insects when they either come into contact with it or eat it. It kills them by attacking the nervous system which causes muscle spasms, paralysis and death. Permethrin is toxic to insects as they cannot break it down as larger organisms like dogs and humans. Lyclear kills the head lice and their eggs to prevent them from multiplying and allows you to comb them out of your hair and get rid of the infestation.

Uses / Instructions

  • Shampoo with mild (non-conditioning) shampoo, rinse thoroughly and towel dry.
  • Shake bottle thoroughly, apply sufficient Lyclear Creme Rinse to saturate the hair and scalp, particularly behind the ears and around the nape of the neck. It is advisable to use the full bottle.

  • After the final rinse and while the hair is still wet a fine toothed comb may be used to remove lice and eggs.

Uses

  • Suitable for use on adults and children over 6 months of age.

  • If Lyclear is accidentally introduced into the eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water.
