Nyx from lice is a special pediculicidal cream containing a powerful insecticide and additional substances that increase its reliability and reduce the side effects of the application. Reviews about the Knicks are generally quite positive and confirm its effectiveness in the fight against lice, including for a single application.
Even despite the fact that the price of the drug is relatively high, due to the harmlessness and quick effect of the cream from lice, Nyx now successfully competes with many cheap means from lice and nits. Moreover, with such unsafe and obsolete national variants of struggle against parasites as application of kerosene, vinegar, tar soap, tincture of wormwood, etc.
On a note
The price of the drug Nyx from lice is about 600 rubles for a 59-ml tube. The cream is made by the German company Aspen Bad Oldesloe GmbH, and in Russia the company "GlaxoSmithKline Trading" is being realized. Considering that one tube is enough for several treatments, the remedy for lice Nix is in the middle price range.
"We every three or four months with this scourge are struggling. My daughter brought me first from the kindergarten, now she drags me out of the school. Such a feeling that there is someone who is contagious, from whom she receives them, they multiply a month, then we display them, and then everything repeats. But we have already tried all the means. Most liked Nyx from lice - German cream. Displays this muck at a time, never on him there was no allergy. True, he is expensive, we have enough tube for four or five times (the daughter has very long and thick hair). "

Composition of the preparation and the principle of action
The main active component of Nix is Permethrin in 1% concentration. This insecticide, when ingested into an insect, affects its nervous system and blocks the transmission of nerve impulses.
As a result, lice begin full paralysis of muscles, including those responsible for blood supply and breathing, and within a few minutes the parasite dies. That's why Nix against lice works fast enough and does not require hourly expectations with a cream on her head.
On a note
With its effectiveness against insects, Nyx is safe enough for humans. Upon ingestion into the digestive tract, Permethrin is quickly cleaved to harmless components and does not have any effect on the nervous system.
In addition to permethrin, Nyx consists of:
- stearalkonium chloride
- cetyl alcohol
- macrogol stearate
- fir canadian balm
- propyl parahydroxybenzoate
- propylene glycol
- dye sunset yellow
- citric acid anhydrous
- purified water.
All these components provide the desired consistency of the cream, its ease of application and the lack of its characteristic for pyrethroids smell.
Against nits, Nix does not directly work, that is, does not destroy them. It simply does not penetrate into the egg of the louse and does not paralyze the developing larva.
It is with this that the need to double head treatment with cream is associated. Although with a responsible approach and additional use of combs lice with the help of Nyx are output at a time.
It is interesting
According to statistics in 90% of cases of using Nix lice are withdrawn in one procedure. In part, such statistics are determined by the fact that the drug is widely used abroad, where the lice combs are used together with it by default.
"We can say accidentally tried the Nyx remedy, but now we will use it from lice always. Once they need to smear their heads, and lice die right away! But after that you need to comb out the nits from the hair, because they do not die at all from anything. We have a comb AntiV, together with Nix he helps to drive lice out at a time. "
Instruction for cream Nyx from lice is similar to the rules for the use of similar drugs.
Hair before treatment should be thoroughly washed with a simple shampoo and rubbed with a towel. Nicks must be applied with a thorough rubbing on the scalp, and then - on the hair along their entire length. From the density and length of hair depends on the consumption of the cream itself.
After applying the cream is kept on the head for about 10 minutes (the head can not be covered) and washed off with water, clean or with shampoo. After processing the hair, follow the strand behind the strand and comb out the comb supplied with the tube.
Similarly, the destruction of the pubic lice is carried out. It is important here to process the groin and hair between the buttocks in addition to the pubic area.
Instruction to the remedy for lice Nix is the same for patients of all ages, including for children over six months and older people.
"Knicks are convenient to use, but it is not very effective. Its plus - you need to keep on your head for only 10 minutes. But after that, lice are left behind. And nits, too. MediFox is a stronger analogue. "
Side effects and precautions when using cream
The main advantage of Nix before the preparations of competitors, even having a close price, is its high harmlessness. Nyx does not lead to poisoning or burns, in exceptional cases causes weak allergic reactions, does not affect well-being.
Nevertheless, despite generally positive reviews, he also has contraindications. It is not recommended to use Nyx for children younger than six months, during pregnancy and lactation. It is contraindicated for acute dermatitis of the head and for individual intolerance to Permethrin.
Side effects from the use of Nix are possible in case of overdose and application of too large amounts of cream on the skin. Thus there are eruptions, there can be a nausea, hypostases, sometimes - an eczema and an itch.
The composition of the cream is isopropyl alcohol, so if you accidentally use it inside (which is possible, if the tube finds a child), poisoning is possible.
Nyx can not be used regularly or with preventive purposes.
How to enhance the effect of Nyx
In order to get rid of lice in one go, with the help of the Nyx remedy, after the hair treatment, it is necessary to carefully comb out them with a comb. The comb that comes with the cream for this, generally speaking, is not very suitable, because it is made of plastic and does not have sufficient rigidity.
Much more reliable options in this case will be metal combs such as AntiV and Lice Guard, which allow you to comb out of your hair even most of the nits. After hair treatment, Nyksom enough for the next two to three days to comb the hair with such combs to completely get rid of both lice and their eggs.
"There is a very good remedy for lice - Nyx. The price of it, however, bites, but it kills all parasites one time. That's just a comb to it in the kit is no. What an ordinary comb. We were lucky, we already had the Robikombovsky ridge, together they worked well. The procedure is usual - the lice are destroyed by the cream, and then all the nits are combed out for a couple of times with a comb. "

Nix from lice on sale in online pharmacies is quite rare, but it is easy to buy in conventional pharmaceutical networks. You can not buy Nix directly from the manufacturer.
It costs Nyx from lice quite expensive - as already mentioned above, about 600 rubles per tube with a comb, and given that a more professional comb to it usually needs to be bought, fighting with lice when using it becomes quite expensive.
