    Default Safe? Unsafe? Wtf

    I was dropping my kids at school when i overheard 2 mums talking about what they use to keep nits away

    One mum said she uses frontline on her kids once a month and it keeps the nits away...... Wtf

    Now i dont have any pets but i see the frontline adds on tv..... For pets!
    Is there a nit preventative called frontline?
    Thou i believe she ment the pet one as she refered to it as 'defleaing them' and then laughed.

    Is that even safe what she is doing? I do wonder if she actually does it or if she was lying but she did seem deadly serious about it.

    *shocked!!

    Omg! I wouldn't even use frontline on my pets (if I had any, DH is allergic ) let alone my children! Tea tree oil combed through the hair is enough.

    I've actually heard of this before. Not sure how safe/effective it actually is.

    Well I retract my statement about the sarcasm - I didn't realise there were such stupid parents out there Surely people can't be serious. Surely!

    Considering how expensive Frontline actually is compared to live treatments , I would say that it was said as a joke.
