Maintain proper hygiene, do not share your comb. Permethrin 1% lotion is used for getting rid of nits and lices, has to be repeated in 7-10 days. Other family members who are affected, should also be treated. For hair loss, first evaluation has to be done before suggesting treatment. Common causes are hypothyroidism, iron deficiency anaemia, prolonged illness in last 6 months. For further help, you may consult me in person @ SkinKONNECT, C - 43 /1, Jhilmil colony, Delhi 95.
