Will dandruff shampoo kill lice

Common Questions and Answers about Will dandruff shampoo kill lice


217229 tn?1192766004 This afternoon the school calls and says that my daughter's classroom has been singled out as an epidemic of head lice. School has just started. OMG OMG OMG OMG I think to myself. I've never seen it, never had it, don't have a clue about it. My experience of head diseases stops at dandruff. So here we go searching, because who knows, there might be something there. Adventurerama right? Wrong. How very freaking wrong.
Avatar n tn after you comb through the wet hair and get out all the dead lice and nits that you can, blow dry her hair, especially scalp for as long as she will let you. The hot air will help kill any remaining lice or nits...or its supposed to anyways. Again, lemme know how it goes... and good luck!!
Avatar n tn another worried mom about lice, go see a doctor hell look at your head and if they are lice and theyve infested that long he might use some permethrin shampoo the only way to really tell is to have a trained pro get a good look sorry
Avatar f tn Don't know how u feel about this but if my daughter was 5 and could sit still u can use clear hair color from Sallys it will make her hair shiny but kill the lice also safe to use on everyone in the house with out a hair color change! Also find out where she's getting them from and have her coached "no brush sharing or pony tail sharing or any sharing of any kind" my daughter at 3 knows not to let others play with her hair or use there grooming things!
529981 tn?1212853666 My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair.
1548538 tn?1293875433 The dermatologists I have seen also tell me they are not lice, but seem to be unconcerned, and give me no suggestions of how to stop them or the itching, except to use dandruff shampoo - which does absolutely nothing. You can see more details of exactly what all of us (over 70 posts at that link) are going through - very similar to exact same stories. They are not flake-like at all. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn My sister then got it and then my mom, we still have it and it's getting on my nerves I am literally going to freak out if the doctor says We have lice, because if they do I will go balistic, I DO NOT HAVE HEAD LICE. I checked it everyday with my mom, and nothing happened, It scared me like wait....what if I have a horrible disease, Maybe it's a type of cancer, It could be anything....
Avatar f tn Go generously on the top then massage your scalp for while.Alcohol will reduce the oil charge and eventually will kill the fungus.First week do the procedure every day and sleep on clean pillow case ,if you cant afford that cover the pillow with clean towels ,second week do the same for every other day.
Avatar n tn In a previous thread you mentioned flakes on your face, Facial dandruff is a symptom. The problem really is why are the mites out of control. Sometimes an autoimmune disorder is the root cause. There are many autoimmune disorders. Some serious, some not so serious and treatable. Large amounts can cause these symptoms. Normal amounts would normally not be noticed. There are treatments for this if you do some research and contact your Dermatologist. Most treatments need a prescription.
Avatar f tn I am 44 and do have some early signs of menopause. I am going to try the vinegar and tea tree shampoo and see what that will do and swing back to post the results.
Avatar n tn If I pull out all the hair in that one area, the swelling goes down. What is going on? I will try washing vigorously and more often with Nizoral Shampoo.
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old and have picked scabs on my scalp since I was about 12 years old. Normally I find little imperfections, possibly dandruff or dry scalp, and I pick at it until it becomes a scab. Once a scab develops, I find myself uncontrollably picking at it, so it usually never heals or takes an extremely long time or another scab to develop to stop. Right now, I have a total of six scabs that I have created on my scalp.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I simply used soap and applied Ketoconazole 2%, which had been prescribed by a dermatologist for an earlier yeast infection. A couple of mornings I also applied some Dandruff shampoo to the area and it just seemed to make it worse so I stopped after the 2 applications. The itching and burning spread all over my penis and to an area in my pubic hair maybe an inch above the bottom of the shaft of my penis.
Avatar n tn We had them all over the house, but I didnt know then what I know now. Although I can kill them outside of my head I cannot get them out or kill them, just stop them from getting to the hatching flying stage. I spend somuch time combing and pulling out eggs, my cat is rejected cause I don't have time to pet him. but them flying out hurts my self esteem. I wont go anywhere or se e anyone. they will only think I am crazy while I am investing there house. I wear a cap everyday.I look down always.
Avatar f tn just take out your mattress and lay it under the sun for a day. The UV rays will kill these bugs for good. Works all the time.
Avatar m tn we set traps and had a professional exterminator come out and found nothing. i went through 4 bottles of lice shampoo and sprayed the house repeatedly. the only difference is that i had a rash and bite like areas. finally got a black light and with tape got this almost microscopic thing. it wasn't fleas, lice, noseeums, mites, parasites but no one is sure what it is. it is the size of sand and has wings. only was able to see it with a black light, only able to see it under a microscope.
Avatar n tn b) used 1/2 baking soda, 1/2 salt mixture on all carpets, beds and other furniture and even regular floors as this will kill anything in larval stages-- they need moisture. c) As someone else above mentioned, I try to keep everything as clean as possible (not very good at that, but I do what's most important) and wrap stuff in air-tight plastic.
612551 tn?1450025775 I am looking for something I can put on his paws that will taste bad and discourage his licking. It can't be another irritant to the skin, Also, it can't be something that would damage the dog if ingests (in lick amounts), i.e., I may find out it doesn't work, he just licks it all off.
Avatar m tn it took me months to figure it out, because when you get bitten all you will see is a black speck or a tiny white dot(which just looks like severly dry skin...in your hair will just look like dandruff) after examination IS NOT DRY SKIN/DANDRUFF@ALL!!! It flys when it gets older but, smaller one's crawl all over! It will move and kindof flop up when touched(if you can grab it BEFORE it gets into a pore or hair follicle)...
Avatar m tn but i also wanted to not KILL myself with poisons; these will actually work and not kill you. i am happy to answer any ??
Avatar f tn Tell her to hang in there. I shampoo with dandruff and medicated shampoos to control the seb derm and any inflammation there may be. They tried me on oral nerve blocks like Gabapentin and Lyrica but they didn't do anything. They are clueless and it's depressing... At first they told me it was all psychological. They had never heard of scalp pain before but I brought in cases of them and they started to believe me and did some research but also could not find a cause or cure.
Avatar n tn i have switched makeup brands, stopped wearing makeup all together, changed pillowcases religiously, done the compresses, used mild baby shampoo on my eyes to clean them now, i take my vitamins, gone to the dermatologist who again prescribed more allergy medication (hasnt worked) went to an Ophthalmologist who said he didnt think it wasnt blepharitis but really wasnt sure what was going on so he prescribed me bousch & lombs neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and dexamethasone ophthalmic oint
Avatar m tn I am at my wits end please if you can help please do so I will keep you posted as well. I will most likely be tenting my home that is so expensive.
Avatar n tn Sometimes at night when I go to bed, I go to lie down and where that feeling is, it will grab, and I have to move my left arm a different way until it relaxes. Sorry I couldn't help much more. Take care!!
Avatar n tn So I thought it might be fungus also, so instead of using a fungus cream that I felt might be risky on the eye, he is using organic apple cider vinegar...the vinegar will kill bacteria and change the ph. It stung the first time but as it healed no longer stung. After the vinegar dried he puts organic coconut oil on it, since coconut oil has properties that kill bacteria also. We just started this a couple days and its working so far. I hope it goes away for good.
Avatar f tn i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin. i blush very easily and when i get hot my face turns ruddy.
Avatar n tn i went to the gyno for the first time a few weeks ago and she said it could be because im a little overweight and she suggested using a good anti-dandruff shampoo. i've been using baby powder and it hasn't really done much, so off to the shampoo! :P im definitely gonna try some of these other things too. thanks!!
Avatar n tn STILL ITCHING now ive got red swollen spots all over, my itch is worse in the morning but when i went to the doc he ruled out scabies , allergies etc anyway he's given me a prescription for extra strong antihystamines will be getting them tomorrow if they work will let everyone know but i'm not holdin my breath!!!!! oh does anyone know of an allergy to the amino acid L-ARGANINE coz i just started them.
Avatar n tn seems to be helping but, will it? 6 months seems too long for this to be going on..I do not have a urinary tract infection, no std's, Gosh I need help...my regular doctor has not been much help at all. It seems to get worse when I sweat or get really hot..Please if anyone else knows what this could be or has had the problem themselves please let me know..
Avatar f tn You nan also use a black walnut husk tincture(15-20 drops a day) , wormwood and garlic to kill the adults. Cloves will kill the eggs, I used the clove oil around my rectum and vagina, that stopped the itching as well as killed the eggs. If you have garlic pills, you can break them and use as well. THE CLOVE OIL IS ESSENTIAL TO KILL THE EGGS. I have been using a Q tips and cotton balls to periodically apply clove oil under and around my nails to kill the eggs.
