The drug is produced in the form of a spray and has advantages and disadvantages characteristic for this form of release, it can be used for children aged 2.5 years.
A pair of lice is used to infect various types of these insects, including when fighting linen lice, but it was in the fight against head and pubic lice that the drug showed itself best, as evidenced by many positive reviews.
Note that when working with any insecticidal drugs, you must strictly follow the safety rules specified in the instructions for use.
"Somehow while the child went to a kindergarten, these problems did not arise, but from school he regularly began to bring lice. The first time we bought Paraplus from lice, a lot of money was tried afterwards. Even tried to poison once with kerosene with a sad result. As a result, according to the price-effect-harmlessness ratio, it was Paraplus that proved to be optimal against lice . "
Remedy for lice and nits Para Plus is an oily solution of three active ingredients with a slight characteristic odor. In this case, unlike most similar drugs, Para Plus is easily washed off hair.
On the nature of the tool and its component composition, let's talk in more detail.
The composition of the preparation and its effect on lice
The rather high efficiency of Para Plus against lice is ensured by the fact that several powerful insecticides are included in its composition:
- Malathion, better known in the people as Carbophos, has an ovicide effect on nits and a powerful effect on the nervous system of most insects, including lice.
- Piperonyl butoxide, which has an intestinal and contact effect. Effective even when it simply hits the surface of the body of an insect.
- Permethrin - perhaps the most famous insecticide today, affecting the nervous system of insects.
When combined with parasites, all three components exert a mutually reinforcing effect on each other (synergistic effect). In this case, the substances used are relatively harmless to humans and can lead to noticeable side effects only in allergy sufferers and in people with an individual intolerance to the drug.
Principle of operation A pair of Plus lice is to block the transfer of impulses in the nervous system of insects with the subsequent onset of paralysis. In this case, insecticides enter the body of parasites not only during respiration, but also through the chitinous integument of the body, so the damaging ability of the agent can be characterized as sufficiently high.
It is also important that Para Plus kills nits , while many other drugs, including many folk remedies for lice, do not possess this ability.
Another feedback on the use of Para Plus
"When Julia brought lice from school (I suspect that she was wearing them for a long time, but we saw them only when there were a lot of them), my mother immediately told me that it was necessary to poison with kerosene. She hung up. I went to buy Para Plus, my friend advised it against lice. Sprayed on her daughter's head, held for 40 minutes. She remembered only when her red spots began to slip on her cheeks. A week, probably, after that she departed, a few small burns on her head were. Conclusion: read the instructions. There the direct text says: keep 10 minutes and rinse. By the way, lice were taken out right away. "
Instructions for use Pair Plus
Remedy for lice Para Plus is used to treat head and pubic lice, less often - to fight with lice.
For the destruction of lice Para Plus is applied to the entire scalp, to the hair along their entire length, and in the case of pubic lice, to the pubic hair and groin. Do not wash your hair with water before applying.
The remedy is kept on the hair for 10 minutes, after which it is washed off with any shampoo or soap.
The amount of the drug consumed depends on the length and thickness of the hair. When applying it to the head, the hair should be spread out with your fingers, so that the spray penetrates better to the skin.
After washing off the product, the hair should be combed over the strands with a thick, rigid comb. It is better to use for this purpose special combs from lice such as Nit Free or AntiV.
"Very good Paraplus. The price is low, from lice it helps , everything dies, only a few living nits remain. The downside is that the comb does not include a comb to which these lice are combed. Well, we already had after the previous withdrawal, so at one time all lice in the child were taken out. "
Irina Arkadevna, Tobolsk
"I'm wondering if the nits kill Para Plus. A friend of mine said that she treated lice for her daughter, so they left living nits on their heads after treatment, I had to process them again. Or they did something wrong? "
With severe infection and a very large amount of nits on the hair, even after proper application of the remedy on the head, live nits can remain. This is normal, because eggs are the most resistant to insecticide phase of development of any parasites.
In these cases, or for several days in a row, carefully comb out the hair to remove the bulk of the nits or the larvae emerging from them, or in a week to re-process the same plan. In this case, all larvae that emerged from the surviving nits will be destroyed.
On a note
The incubation period of nits is 5-7 days. Thus, a week after the first hair treatment with Para Plus, all larvae will hatch from all the nits.
Pair Plus from pubic lice is used in the same way as for head lice, but when applied near genitals it is necessary to make sure that the spray does not get on the mucous membranes. Here it can cause painful irritations.
In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water. According to the instructions, the treatment itself should be carried out in a well-ventilated area away from open flame.

Where and at what price can I buy Para Plus?
Buy a remedy for lice Para Plus today is easy - it is sold through pharmacy chains in all major cities of Russia. You can also buy it online, but due to the length of the drug delivery this option is less preferred, since lice need to be disposed of immediately, once they have been seen. In the optimal case, the package with the product should simply be in the house just in case.
The price of Para Plus is approximately 350 rubles per bottle for 116 grams. This amount is enough for two long hair treatments or for more treatments if the hair is short.
"We bought and Para Plus, tried. From lice it relieves well, but live nits remain. That is, a complete ovicidal effect is not noticed. The first time, not having read the instruction, kept it on the head for a small half hour, burnt the skin, then the hair was restored for a couple of weeks. And even then a small amount of nits were combed out still alive. "
"If you compare French Para Plus with Belgian Paranit, then Para Plus is more effective. We tried both, and after Para Plus there was not a single living louse left. But we have it harder to get it, I do not even know why. "
