lice tea tree oil treatments
Infestation of head lice is common where mixed groups of individuals are in close quarters for extended periods of time. Although they are generally called head lice (pediculosis capitus), they may be found on other areas of the body's trunk (p. corporis) or in the genital area (p. pubis). The louse survives by puncturing the skin and eating the blood that rises to the skin's surface. These bites can be extremely painful and cause children to itch, which leads to serious secondary infections. Lice move from victim to victim via the exchange of hats, combs, brushes, and clothing. The louse is visible under a small magnifying glass. Plump grayish white eggs of the louse affix themselves to the hair shaft and are difficult to displace. Because head lice hatches after about one week, they can multiply very rapidly. The most common treatment for this problem has been the use of such toxic substances as lindane (an active ingredient in Kwell) is a known carcinogen shown to cause mutations and cancer in animals. Regardless of its toxicity, it is still being prescribed. Over the past several years, doctors familiar with the use of Tea Tree Oil have had equally impressive results from this natural remedy-with none of the side effects.
Massage a capful of liquid Nambucca Tea Tree Oil directly into the hair and scalp. Wrap the hair in a hot towel and allow to stand for approximately 10~ minutes.

To prevent reinfestation, wash clothing and bedding very carefully.
