Paranitis is a well-known remedy for fighting lice, produced in the form of a spray in a special bottle with a spray that facilitates hair treatment. The preparation is a colorless or slightly yellow liquid with an oily liquid that is practically odorless.
In addition to the spray itself, a special comb comes from the lice for combing the dead parasites and their eggs (nits) from the hair. Due to this combing, the effectiveness of hair treatment with spray significantly increases, and with a slight infestation it is the comb that sometimes relieves the patient from re-treatment.
Due to the presence of a comb in the kit, the price for the remedy for lice is relatively high, but significantly lower than the cost of a similar spray and comb, bought separately.
"As with Mitya, with Sasha in the first class, all the usual woes happened. Even before winter, he managed to pick up chicken pox and lice in school. I had a chickenpox quickly, but we did not notice the lice immediately, and he began to itch when there were already a lot of them. I was horrified - from him also infected Mitya, and I, and my husband. In short, to be sure, they bought a steep Belgian spray Paranitis from lice, in which there are no poisons and about which several reviews read. In comparison with Pedilin, he, of course, is weaker - he kills lice, but not all, and besides, nits do not perish from him at all. Therefore, if you take it, count at least two head treatments. But it did not have any allergies, but in the package there is also a special comb. "
Alena, St. Petersburg
Remedy for lice Paranitis is produced by an international company Omega-Pharma with headquarters in Belgium, and in the CIS territory is distributed through a dealer network. The company is known for producing various pharmacological preparations that do not require a prescription.
For example, the same Paranit does not contain insecticides, the presence of which in the means of lice are so afraid of many parents. But at the expense of what then this preparation so effectively works? Let's understand ...
Spray composition Paranit
The main active component of Paranita is dimethicone, which is a chemical nature of silicone. This substance envelops the chitinous cover of lice and flows into the spiracles, thereby clogging them, which eventually leads to suffocation.
At the same time, dimethicone is absolutely harmless to humans, and when hit on the hair and scalp, it almost never causes side effects.
On a note
Moreover, dimethicone is widely used in cosmetology as a means of combating wrinkles, and with flatulence and bloating, it is recommended to take it inward to reduce gassing.
In addition to dimethicone, lice remedy Paranitis contains Isopar mineral oil, which in many ways is the cause of the main problems and a large number of negative reviews about the drug. From lice, isopar does not help at all, but this component serves as a solvent for dimethicone - it is impossible to make a substance with this substance on a water or alcohol basis.
But in oil, silicone dissolves well, but this same oil can be quite problematic to wash out of hair (even with shampoo).
"Paranitis is a good remedy, but it's very problematic to wash it. I gave my son 8 (!) Times to rinse my head with soap, shampoo, then again with soap - and still they are fatty. Well, we live near the sea, the next day the beach came off, all the sea water dried. And in the middle band, this means will have to wear a week on the head. "
The disadvantage of dimethicone is that it does not work on nits. There are no respiratory tracts for lice eggs, there is nothing to stop clogging, and therefore even after careful treatment of the head with Paranita, larvae from the nits after some time will still hatch.
This problem is solved by careful re-treatment of the head a week after the first use of the drug. This secondary treatment also implies instruction to Paranita.
"We tried ParaPlus and Paranit. ParaPlus, of course, lice acts like a nuclear bomb. All - and large, and small, and nits dying from him at times. But his head burns directly. For a few minutes you will stop, and begin to sprinkle. But Paranit - such a gentle sprayer. Sprayed - and no problems. Only after it all the nits live remain, fingers squeeze - they pop. So here it is - either once, but hard, or twice, but without any problems. By the way, Paranitis is difficult to wash off, it contains some oil. "
How to apply Paranitis?
To remove the lice spray Paranit should be evenly sprayed on the hair along their entire length until completely wet. In accordance with the instructions, the radical zone of the hair needs to be treated especially carefully: the hair is spread apart with the hands, and the product is applied to the skin between them and carefully rubbed into the skin.
According to the manufacturer, most parasites die within a period of 10 to 20 minutes after applying the spray. After about half an hour after hair treatment, the preparation is thoroughly washed off with warm water and shampoo.
"Paranitis from lice does not help. The price for it is big (something about 500 rubles it costs), reviews write good, but we did everything according to the instructions and the result - only a part of the parasites died. And both her husband and daughter. The very next day they found living lice, not larvae, but quite adults. A week later they processed it - and still they stayed. Considering how much this Paranita is worth, he definitely can find a good replacement. "
One spray can, depending on the length and thickness of the hair, is enough for 1-4 treatments. Even if the hair is very dense, it is worthwhile to process them along the entire length - the parasites can creep onto the tips during processing.
After the spray from the head is washed away, the hair must be combed with the supplied comb.
After processing each strand from the comb, you need to remove the combed lice and nits. This is done with a wet cotton swab.
After treatment with lice, Paranit needs to wash clothes, hats, scarves and towels of the infected family member at the maximum possible temperature. Dry them right under the sun - on the street or balcony.
After a week or two after the first treatment, the procedure for applying Paranita should be repeated to destroy the lice that hatched from that time from the nits.
In some cases, after the first use of the agent, nits can be removed by active combing, and in the repeated procedure does not arise.
Safety and possible side effects
Paranitis from lice is safe enough and only with pronounced individual sensitivity can cause a person an allergic reaction. To check it is worth splashing the product on the skin on the inner crook of the elbow and stand for a few minutes.
If no rashes or redness on the skin has appeared, Paranitis can be used.
- The manufacturer does not recommend the use of Paranit for the destruction of lice in children under 3 years of age
- Also, the use of the drug for pregnant and lactating women is not recommended.
- Unequivocally, you can not use the spray for skin diseases of the head and the presence of wounds and fresh scratches.
During the application of Paranita, the hair should be monitored so that the product does not get into the eyes or nose. To do this, it is convenient to tie a fabric bandage on the forehead.
If the product gets into the eyes during treatment, they should be thoroughly rinsed. If the patient feels a lack of air during the treatment, he should be taken out into the street, and the use of Paranita should be stopped.
How much does Paranit cost?
The price for Paranit today is about 600 rubles per bottle with a spray of 100 ml complete with a comb. In offline pharmacies, the price can be several (but slightly) lower.
Similar to the Paranita, the composition also has a spray from Nyud's lice, but its composition instead of mineral oil includes wax and natural triglycerides. As a result, the effectiveness of both drugs is approximately the same, but Nyuda is somewhat more expensive (about 350 rubles per bottle per 50 ml). At this point, every buyer should choose a product more suitable for him at his discretion.
"Paranitis is an excellent remedy. Only they got lice. Before him, wormwood was poisoned, and combed with crests, and smeared with some kind of lice. And Paranit was clearly instructed twice with a break in a week, washed away - and that's all, no parasites. "
