Treat super lice fast with Vamousse® Lice Treatment
Students are heading back into the classroom, which means every family is at risk for the spread of lice, and super lice, in their homes. Vamousse Lice Treatment is clinically proven to kill lice and their eggs in a single treatment.1 Clinical trial conducted at Lice Source Services, Plantation, FL, Dec. 2015, and is effective against super lice that have become resistant to two major pesticides – permethrin and pyrethroids. The treatment is available over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription or physician’s visit, so parents can begin to control lice immediately.
Lori Haapala, RN, BSN, and a school nurse with Kanawha County Schools, helps families with lice infestations. “When a child has contracted head lice at school, the real issue is preventing the spread of it at home amongst siblings and other family members,” said Happala. “Head lice can be an extremely daunting and frustrating experience for both the parent and child. With vigilance, problems can be detected early-on, diminishing the likelihood of it spreading to the rest of the family and allowing the situation to be resolved faster.”
Unfortunately, lice are an irritating reality of childhood. The CDC estimates as many as 12 million infestations occur each year in the United States and studies have shown that it’s most common among preschool and school-aged children.2 Vamousse Lice Treatment enables parents to end an infestation fast with ingredients they can feel good about. Kids will appreciate it too – the mousse is a fun component and smells good. The treatment resolves the situation with the first application – “once and done” and kids are back to focusing on learning, not dealing with the itchy effects of head lice.
“Parents have a treatment option that goes to work on both lice and eggs during the same application – providing a quick, reliable experience,” said Jason Schmidt, an entomologist and Director of Product Development for makers of Vamousse. “Vamousse Lice Treatment can help relieve the stress parents often feel when their child is suffering from head lice.”
Vamousse Lice Treatment represents a new generation of head lice solutions. It works differently than traditional OTC products, as the active ingredient, natrum muriaticum, dehydrates the lice without using a pesticide.
To empower parents to remain vigilant with care, beyond conducting daily head checks, Vamousse offers a gentle daily shampoo – Vamousse Lice Defense – that kills lice[ref]As shown in lab studies3 and is recommended for use during high-risk periods, and for 10 to 14 days after potential exposure. Like all Vamousse lice products, Lice Defense can be used by the entire family, including children as young as two.
