Q.

Contra-lice

Hi

I just wanted to find out if Contra- lice is recommended for use on my 2 year old son- is it safe for him? I will make sure that it doesn''t go anywhere near the eyes.
Just want to use something that would remove lice if he got them (there is a lice infestation at the moment in our suburb) but not harm/ cause burning on his scalp in any way.

Thanks and regards
Gina

Contra lice or any lice shampoo should NEVER be used as a preventative, but only as a treatment.
