As of 2015, Sklice is not available for purchase online, according to Sklice.com. Sklice is available by prescription only and is used to treat head lice in patients over the age of 6 months.
Sklice is available in lotion form and is designed for topical use on the scalp and in the hair, reports Sklice.com. After Sklice is applied to the head, it is vital to comb out all of the nits and lice eggs with a fine-tooth comb. It is important to be aware of skin allergies or sensitivities prior to using Sklice, as the medicated lotion can create problems if the doctor is unaware of these issues. Sklice may be harmful to those who are pregnant or breastfeeding; further research is unavailable as of 2015.
The side effects of Sklice may include soreness, eye irritation, dry skin and dandruff. If any of these problems persist or becomes extremely bothersome, it is necessary to seek professional help right away, advises Sklice.com. In order to get rid of head lice, it is important to wash and dry all bedding, hats, stuffed animals and other pieces of clothing that may have been in contact with the patient's head or hair. In addition, all personal grooming devices, such as combs and brushes, should be washed and sanitized in hot water.
