There's so much further advanced products in the animal field for parasites than in human, the technology being used on nits is early 1980s or earlier....
    Oh wow! Is it safe ?

    I don't know if it is safe however I know a few doctors that actually do this on their kids! They said to only put the littlest drop on it not whole pack.
    I couldn't do it though

    I used to get them badly in highschool of all places, I could be infested for 6 months at a time and the only thing that worked for me was dousing my hair in vinegar, leaving it over night under a shower cap, then washing out and daily hair combing in the shower until they went away.

    AHHHHHH lice. PIA they are.
    DD had them constantly for about 6 months. Ive used pretty much everything on the market hahah. Started with MOOV...didn't work, them used two bottle of KP 24...didn't work. The last one I tried was neutralice...finally worked. It was the best one. worked in one go, easy to comb as its a conditioner type one.

    Since then I spray teatree/water mix every day onto her haor to keep them away. So far, no more lice

    It's done heaps, I get that amount on me reg when doing dog treatments anyway. Humans metabolise pyrethrins very well and imadicloprid has a zero withholding on our food as a pesticide. I will do in my ds when needed. My parents shampooed me in flea shampoo back in the day and it worked well, by I'm 37yo not sure about resistance issues these days with those drugs ( flea shampoo is old fashioned) but they're still more advanced than the human stuff and I was at Childcare in the early 80s. Don't get the top spots in ur mouth it makes ur lips tingle badly though!

    As per instructions, I don't get a drop of frontline/advantage/etc on when applying. I also won't let the kids pat our dog after treatment (until after dog's next bath)and when pregnant would make DH apply it.

    A quick google shows info like this. I couldn't link the WA one on my phone as its a PDF but it states that it is actually against the law to use these products on humans.

    Please, random strangers on internet, don't put this stuff on your kids!

    Yes can I echo this. Please don't use systemic animal pesticides on children. They are labelled not for human use for a reason

    No, it is not safe and it is an offence to use these products on humans, for good reason!
    Without realising the risks, parents are self-medicating their children with dangerous insecticides. The active ingredient of concern found in animal flea treatment products is called Fipronil.

    “Fipronil is a phenylpyrazole insecticide and acts to block the normal functioning of the central nervous system in insects and also mammals.” (WA Department of Health, 2008)

    According to the Beyond Pesticides website, symptoms of exposure/poisoning from Fipronil can include headaches, nausea, dizziness, weakness, irritations, lethargy and convulsions. In short-term studies adverse side effects occurred in the central nervous system in all test species.

    WTF. Why would you even take the risk putting frontline on your kids?
    There are products meant for humans that kill lice well and if you repeat after a week the babies are also dead and life cycle ended.
    Absolutely no need to use a product meant for animals
