asha chaudhry

hi krishna - pls make sure everyone in the house uses medikar, wash combs in hot water, add dettol. wash pillow covers. tagging Dr Bhavi Mody to advise. sonam patel Dhara Popat any suggestions?

agree witb Asha Chaudhary, even if one remains it can again inflict you... also i think mediker is to be used at some intervals, as the nits(egg of lice) keeps hatching at a particular interval... you can also use water boiled with neem and tulsi leaves... put a drop of eucalyptus oil on your pillow while sleeping...

Hi Krishna,

Here is what Dr Bhavi Mody has to advise:

Since you have already used Mediker here are a few suggestions
1. Homeopathy helps. Give it a shot.
2.Use Neem paste in oil and apply.
3.Mix 1tsp of TeaTree in oil and apply.
Strongly recommend Homeopathy.Have had great results with it.

I dnt have much experience with lice..  I have heard from a friend who had lice.. that she applied petroleum jelly on hairs at night. covered hairs with a shower cap.. next morning she removed  it and combed..
try mediker, if it doesn't work then you can try this..
