Of the multitude of folk remedies for lice, chaerical water is perhaps one of the most famous and effective. However, few people think about what this drug is, whether it's chinese water acting on nits and how safe it is in general (for example, for children, for pregnant women). In these and some other interesting questions, we will try to understand further.
So, the crooked water, widely available today in pharmacies, is a mixture in equal proportions of an alcoholic tincture of Lobel's chieftain (a famous medicinal plant) and water. The main active components of the tincture of the hellebore used to excrete lice are natural alkaloids extracted into tincture from vegetable raw materials.
Alkaloids, which are part of the cynical water, are very toxic for various insects, fungi, bacteria ... and humans. That's why chaerical water proves to be quite effective in fighting lice, but at the same time it is quite dangerous if it is used incorrectly.
On a note
Lubelya is known in the people as a puppeteer or chihhotka and is known as a very poisonous plant. Alkaloids in the juice of its roots and stems when ingested in large quantities can lead to death. Even the inhalation of air with the dust of the crushed root leads to severe irritations of the respiratory tract, coughing and sneezing.
The action of chemic water on lice and nits
Potemkin water has a poisonous effect even with a simple contact with the outer chitinous cover of lice. The presence of alcohol in the solution promotes better wetting of parasites, swelling of the drug in the spiracles and gradual penetration of the internal tissues and organs of the insect. The result of the use of crooked water is the rapid death of virtually the entire population of lice, including adults and larvae of all ages.
"I had to treat children from lice three times, and I always used only crooked water. I do not recognize any chemical agents - they are all dangerous and it is not known how they will affect the child. A chieftain against lice is a proven method for centuries. You put it as a simple alcohol, you put a bag on your head, take it off in half an hour and wash it all off - that's all. Only need to comb the lice. I do not know what kind of newfangled shampoo will give the same result. At the same time, neither the daughter nor the son has ever had any irritation or allergies from the chicken water. For the first time my son showed off lice when he was a year and a half - also without any consequences. "
Yana, Mineral Waters
Many believe that the chimeric water kills nits due to the same contact action: first the solution penetrates through the outer shell of the nit, after which it affects the internal content of the egg itself. However, practice shows that even using the crooked water in full compliance with the instructions, it is far from always possible to destroy all the nits on the head (this is also confirmed by the responses of people).
Therefore, be prepared for the fact that even with proper application of crooked water from lice, it may be necessary to re-treat them approximately 1-2 weeks after the first to completely remove them. During this time, larvae from survivors of the first procedure will be withdrawn, and they will need to be destroyed by re-treatment.
Use of chinese water: we destroy lice correctly
Before you remove lice with chinese water, you need to thoroughly wash your hair with a simple shampoo.
After this, chinese water is applied to the hair and scalp with a cotton swab. It is important to ensure that the product has been applied to the hair along its entire length - otherwise there is a risk that some of the hair remains untreated.
Instructions for the use of chinese water from lice recommends that they be carefully treated with the occiput, skin behind the ears and whiskey.
"It's very simple to bring out lice by means of plumage." To do this, you just need to moisten the cotton wool with this product and spread the hair and scalp until it gets wet. Then we put on a kerchief and walk around for 40 minutes. No unpleasant sensations cause this remedy, although one of my acquaintances from the chegerye had red spots on his head that did not hurt and did not itch. Then my head and everything. I so deduced a louse at myself and at two children. Lice die right away, nits too. But her neighbor persecuted, and then she had nits, I do not know why. But after the second time it all ended. "
After applying the product, a handkerchief or a simple plastic bag is put on the hair. In this kind of chemically shaped water should be left on the head for half an hour, after which the bag or scarf is removed, and the head is thoroughly washed first with running water, and then with a simple shampoo.
Even wet hair after the treatment must be combed out with a frequent metal comb - so from the hair will be removed dead lice, some nits, and those parasites that are just paralyzed, but still alive. Convenient for this purpose special combs from lice - they allow you to comb out almost all parasites.
If after treatment on the head live lice are found, the procedure can be repeated only the next day. Optimal option will be re-treatment after a week - so will be destroyed, and accidentally survived lice, and larvae hatched from the nerve-racking nits of the nits.
"I can write such a comparative characteristic of cynical water and shampoo Parasidosis. We tried first shampoo, and then - a year later, after another infection - cynical water. So, Parasidosis does not kill nits and almost always they need to process their head twice - the second one a week after the first. Capricious water on nits and lice acts more reliably - it kills everyone at a time. From Parasidosis, the child had a rash on his neck, my husband and I did not have a rash. From the chaotic water everyone had a bit of a headache, but there were no visible irritations. Well and most importantly - the price of chemically water is much less than the cost of any product. The same Parasidosis costs 280 rubles per bottle, and water - only 35 rubles. Parasidosis has only one advantage - the comb comes with it, and it's very good. "
Safety and contraindications when applying tinctures
Withdrawing lice, it is important to remember that chaerical water is a very toxic substance. It is believed that getting even 1 ml of it into the digestive tract can cause serious poisoning, and in large quantities it can be deadly to humans.
However, against lice, it is quite possible to use curious water, it is important only to make sure that there are no wounds and scratches on the skin in the treatment area. After applying ethereal water to the hair, you need to control your sensations - if excessive burning starts, itches, feels hot on your head, then you do not have to endure, you need to rinse the product as soon as possible.
Care should be taken to ensure that chimeric water does not reach the mucous membranes, eyes, nose and mouth. If there are wounds on the head, you can not use the remedy.
"When lice were harvested, they themselves travnulas hobier. It seems to be all written, but only my husband and daughter are all right, and me and my son (8 years old) then vomited all night. Then they asked the district therapist, she said that maybe it was because we did not wrap our head in a pack - couples from the chesteress were acting on us. "
Due to the high toxicity of the remedy, it is not recommended to use lentil water from lice in pregnant and lactating women.
However, no studies of the effect of this drug on the fetus and infants have been conducted. Official medicine also recommends the use of chicken water from lice for children under the age of 12 years.
If the chicken water is accidentally swallowed, there may be nausea, vomiting, dizziness and allergies. In this case, you should drink a large amount of warm strong tea and show your doctor. In the hospital for poisoning with chegery can appoint holinoliticheskie drugs and funds for the treatment of the organs of the gastrointestinal tract.
How to lick lice and help hair at the same time
It is known that chinese water not only kills lice and nits, but also helps restore scalp and stimulates hair growth. So, for example, chinese water destroys the fungus, contributing to the appearance of dandruff, reduces the production of sebum, and stimulates blood circulation in the scalp.
Capricious water is also used in a complex of folk remedies for combating baldness: it has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of hair follicles and stimulates the growth of new hair. To this end, it is added to shampoos in very small amounts and this head is washed 1-2 times a week.
Alternatives to crochet water: from folk remedies to modern medicines
Due to its effectiveness against lice and nits, it is even more superior than many modern pediculicide drugs.
However, in cases where chloe water is allergic or there are wounds and scratches on the treated areas of the skin, less toxic substances should be used instead:
- for example, pedulin shampoo or Para-Plus spray - these drugs also kill nits, but are less allergenic.
- A spray from Nyuda lice - it is good for children, since it does not contain any toxic insecticides at all.
- Lice combs as independent means - here you should pay attention to AntiV and LiceGuard (the leaders of this market). Working with them is time-consuming, and the head will have to be combed for several days in a row, but no side effects will threaten them.
But the folk remedies for lice such as kerosene, vinegar and hydrogen peroxide are better not to use - they strongly irritate the skin and can lead to serious burns. The hypothermic water favorably differs from them in that, with equal efficiency, it is much safer.
But if the chinese water is not suitable, and synthetic preparations you are afraid to use, you can always use the most reliable, cheap and simple method of removing lice - just shave your hair bald. This procedure, especially carried out in the summer, not only eliminates lice and nits, but also helps to improve the scalp.
