Our expert says:
Gambex or Lycleer is not dangerous to use if you follow the instructions carefully and not leave it on the child's head for longer than necessary. The instances of poisoning happened when parents left the shampoo too long (even overnight) or used it too often. I even had a mother that sprayed Doom on the poor child's head - dangerous!
Herbal anti lice shampoos are available ( Dischem and Margaret Roberts have products). I used a lice shampoo like Gambex, then rinsed with water with a bit of vinegar in it, and after blow drying, I covered my childs face and asked her to bend over, I then sprayed her long hair just very lightly with Paraspray - avoiding contact of the Paraspray with any skin - to prevent re-infection.
Good luck, hope this helps a bit.
