  • It's basically pesticide. So, no.

    Tea tree oil works wonders once you've gotten rid of the lice and it isn't dangerous

  • Good lord, if the kid has lice, get to the source, I would imagine there are other options.

  • I wouldn't advocate using it once, much less multiple times on a small child. It's poison. You (hopefully) wouldn't douse your childs head in Raid, don't poison your childs body with Rid either. There are natural, safe, effective alternatives. Look online and try the suggestions involving mayonnaise, olive oil, and tea tree oil. You can use a cat comb too, you don't need to spend more money for a 'lice comb'.
