Mom in Training: Nix® Lice Treatment

November 2, 2011

Nix® Lice Treatment


Nix® Lice Treatment is the #1 pharmacist recommended treatment for the removal of head lice and their eggs. Not only does Nix® kill head lice and their eggs fast, it protects against re-infestation for up to 14 days, longer than any other lice treatment. Additionally, Nix® Lice Treatment is completely safe, as it has been approved by the FDA for use on children over two months of age. Formerly available by prescription only, Nix® is now sold over-the-counter at full prescription strength, which works with a single application.

The active ingredient in Nix® is Permethrin, which is a common synthetic chemical, belonging to the family of synthetic chemicals called pyrethroids. Premethrin is for external use only and is toxic to parasites and their eggs. Premethrin should be stored at room temperature in an area void of excessive moisture.

For best results, always follow directions per label.

We've had the unfortunate experience of having lice come home with my daughter.  Not fun, especially on Christmas day!  Luckily the local CVS was open and my husband was able to get some Nix to take care of the problem fast!  Now we make sure we keep some on hand for those unfortunate moments in need.. Hopefully we never have to use it, but if we do we are prepared.

  9. So far we have not had lice at our house. But, growing up my nieces and nephews had them quite a bit so that was definitely something I will never forget. It was incredibly hard to get rid of them once they were around.
    I am soo thankful that it has been pretty quiet around the schools here so far.

  10. my daughter is a lice magnet, I have spent the last 2 years dealing with them off and on. Now that she is older, and much wiser (as in not sharing hats or play costumes with other kids at childcare) I am hoping no incidents this year!

  19. I hate head lice! I moved in with this guy and he had 2 kids that he got every other weekend. They were 8 and 12. Turns out they had head lice and had it most of their lives. Him and their mom couldn't understand why I freaked out about it. It didn't bother them. I moved out pretty quick.

  22. We had head lice last year... NOT FUN. My girls have very curly, very thick dark hair so it was difficult to spot them and keep them in sight. I had to deep clean the whole house and do about 10 loads of laundry. The worse part about it was that my youngest's birthday was in the middle of all this. Thanks for the giveaway
