It probably wasn't a joke, I know of people who do this. I wouldn't do it myself, because it is a treatment for animals not children, however, the product is safe on 2 day old puppies and kittens, so it is highly unlikely to hurt a child...
Still I wouldn't do it myself and sure their are much more appropriate alternatives. I wouldn't gasp in shock/horror if someone told me they were using it though.
ETA - I am talking about frontline SPRAY not frontline top spot. Completely different. The top spot is not safe, the spray is.

Sorry to get off topic but can you use tea tree oil as a preventitive? I was just looking into it the other day as we got a note come home saying about headlice and I was trying to research natural ways to deter them...

Yep just get a spray bottle fill with water then a generous tip of TT oil for a big spray bottle. Then just spray in their hair. It does have a strong smell but I find it disperses quickly.

I just looked it up on ehow, it mentions this:
IGRs seem to be safe for animals and people, only affecting the fleas. Fipronil is not as benign. The Environmental Protection Agency has labeled it a "possible human carcinogen." It can cause local irritation to skin and eyes, and is dangerous if swallowed.
It could be fine, but I figure it's a product for animals. Not humans. If it were effective and safe for humans they'd bottle it and sell it for a mint!

G it sounds like this is common then..?
Still its a bit unsettling... and i would think she would look into other options before resorting to a pet product!
A pp mentioned the spray n top spot... Im not sure which she uses as i was eavesdropping (thou she was so loud everyone could hear her) but i dont recall her saying which she uses.
To another pp about tt oil, yes its the perfect preventative and i aslo spray hairspray ontop of that!!

So well said sjay!
While I personally wouldn't use Frontline or dog flea shampoo, tea tree oil doesn't always fix it. My niece had a recurring case of nits for about 14 months. it drove my poor sister absolutely crazy! She tried all the natural alternatives but to no avail. She treated everyone living in the house and still nothing. Eventually after much research she tried a product sold in the chemist and after doing three courses of it, the nits finally went away. I must admit though somsone mentioned using Frontline and although she didn't use it, she was tempted ..
