Origin

The practice of using gasoline (or kerosene, naptha, benzine, or turpentine) to kill head and body lice is an old one — references to it appear in medical journals as far back as 1917, with even those sources positioning that mode of treatment as a well established one. It therefore poses no mystery that this bit of medical has been handed down to succeeding generations as a valid home remedy, even though significant pharmacological advancement for dealing with lice has taken place over the last century.

Moderately priced and highly effective licecides have been available for several decades now. While dousing a lice-riddled child’s hair with gasoline might have been a somewhat valid treatment choice for those living in much earlier times, generations beyond that have had far better choices readily available to them.

However, although better treatments are easily obtainable, the practice of using gasoline against lice continues even to this day. “It was good enough for our great-grandmothers,” some say, “so it’s good enough for us. Great-granny swore by this treatment and never had any problems with it.” For those who’ve been subject to home remedy knowledge passed down through their families, there’s a sense of being one of the precious few who are in on something most of the general population is unaware of, and that sense of “I know something you don’t” is a potent motivator to put that knowledge to use.

Beyond the allure of using a folk medicine cure from the distant past on a problem that exists in the here and now, an embarrassment factor likely adds to the persistence of gasoline use. Buying over-the-counter or prescription medications and preparations that treat lice means a trip to the pharmacy and the public purchase of concoctions that by their very nature reveal what they’re to be used for. An element of shame attaches to this sort of infestation, as lice have long been associated with unclean homes and bodies. By using gasoline rather than openly-purchased products meant to kill lice, one can avoid the (presumed) hard stares of the pharmacy clerk and surrounding shoppers.

Yet whatever the motivation, using gasoline to kill head lice is not a good idea. This practice is dangerous, and over the years many people have been severely burned and scarred for life thanks to it.

The fumes let off by gasoline can (and do) ignite in the presence of even the smallest spark or flame. All it takes is an errant spark from an electrical appliance, a lit cigarette, or a pilot light in a stove or water heater to turn a child into a fireball. The fuel’s fumes (rather than the liquid itself) ignite, which means human conflagration is touched off not by a flame coming in contact with gasoline-soaked hair, but by gasoline-soaked hair being in the same room as the flame or spark.

These following cases reported in the news present a list of some of the human tragedies that have resulted from the practice of attempting to combat lice infestation with gasoline:



    In February 2009, 18-year-old Jessica Brooks of Evansville, Indiana, suffered second- and third-degree burns over more than half of her body after the pilot light of the nearby water heater ignited the gasoline she’d used on her hair.

In September 2003, 13-year-old Koran Jenkins of Berkeley, California, had burns over a quarter of his body after his gasoline-soaked hair was ignited by a spark from the stove’s pilot light. The boy’s right hand, which sustained fourth-degree burns, was so badly damaged doctors had to amputate all his fingers. He also lost two fingers from his left hand. He spent more than two months in the hospital and underwent eight surgeries, including many skin grafts.

In August 2000, 12-year-old Stephanie LeBlanc of Aurora, Colorado, had second- and third-degree burns to over a quarter of her body after gas stove ignited the fumes from her gasoline-soaked tresses.

In October 1998, a 4-year-old girl living in Davie, Florida, suffered second-degree burns on her head with blistering and peeling after the fumes from the gasoline wafted over the stove’s pilot light.

In July 1997, 13-year-old Terry Adams of Des Moines, Iowa, was seriously burned when the pilot light from the home’s water heater ignited the gasoline fumes.

In September 1996, an 11-year-old girl living in Merrimac, Wisconsin, suffered severe burns to her hands, arms and face and of her body after the pilot light from the stove ignited the gasoline used on her.

In September 1995, 12-year-old Tabitha Kalvas and her 40-year-old mother, Alma Homea, of Fort Worth, Texas, were both ignited by the gasoline used in the home remedy. The child had burns to of her body, and the mother had burns to It’s possible the mother was smoking while pouring the gasoline on her daughter’s head to rid her of lice.

In April 1992, 16-year-old Jamie Lewis of Tulsa, Oklahoma, endured second- and third-degree burns over as much as of her body after the pilot light in water heater ignited her hair.

  • In October 1989, a 5-year-old girl living in Pendleton, South Carolina, was taken to hospital in critical condition after the gas fumes were ignited by the pilot light in a gas stove.
  • Even when its fumes don’t ignite, gasoline can irritate the scalp and produce painful burning.

    The route to safely and effectively ridding oneself or one’s children of lice typically begins with over-the-counter products that fall into two categories: permethrins (including Nix rinse) and pyrethrins (including Pronto and Rid shampoos). Doctors urge the reapplication of these products seven to ten days after initial treatment. For persistent or especially resistant infestation, two prescription-only treatments are available: lindane shampoo (Kwell) and Ovide lotion, which contains malathion

    Bedding and toys need to be washed at high heat or dry cleaned as well.

    How to use kerosene for lice and nits

    Pediculosis is the most common parasitic disease of the human scalp, found mainly in children. It is believed that this disease can be found in persons who do not comply with hygiene standards, but it is not.

    Even with compliance with all standards of hygiene, you can face this scourge. In most cases, it is a contact with an already infected person and by means of infection can be the use of his things and objects, such as: towel, comb, barrette, brush, bed linen, carpet, animal. And a place where you can pick up the infection — places of mass gathering of people, such as preschool, summer camp and others.

    The effect of kerosene on lice

    More recently, kerosene was almost the only means to help get rid of lice. It is used today.

    neutralThis substance is flammable, you must comply with heightened security measures. / neutral

    Due to the fact that kerosene fumes penetrate into the respiratory organs of lice, and the chemical composition has a destructive effect on the chitinous membrane, the parasites die as a result of this treatment.

    A little harder to cope with nits, but kerosene also has the desired effect on them:

    1. The applied mixture neutralizes the properties of the composition, which ensures reliable fixation of nits on the hair.
    2. The adhesive covering the eggs is broken down and the nits are easily combed out.

    Even if the louse survives, she will try to get away from the unpleasant smell of kerosene, so you need to exclude any possibility of escape.

    Features of the use of kerosene at home

    Kerosene is dangerous not only for lice, but also for humans, so during processing it is necessary to strictly follow the recipe, methods and rules for handling flammable liquids.

    Today, when in pharmacies without any problems you can buy a remedy for lice, people continue to treat lice with folk remedies. Despite the many side effects, kerosene is still in demand.

    Compared with modern insecticides, its action is not limited to the impact on the nervous system of insects, but leads to rapid death from suffocation. The kerosene film blocks the access of oxygen and the parasites die.

    For leather, kerosene treatment also does not pass without a trace. Possible side effects such as:

    • Burns
    • Disturbance of hair follicles.

    As a result, the hair condition worsens. Improper use of the product can harm a person, so extreme caution should be exercised, especially when it comes to children.

    Kerosene is used for different types of lice:

    • From those who live on the head,
    • From underwear.

    But the method of application of the tool will be different. We will also tell you how to get head lice with kerosene on your head and give recommendations on how to clean the clothes of parasites at home.

    Kerosene against nits

    Eggs lice, which are called nits, will not die from suffocation, as a dense shell protects them from the negative effects of the environment. Theoretically, nits can be destroyed with kerosene, but this will require a high concentration of the substance and prolonged exposure.

    neutral If you take nits and fill them with pure kerosene, they will die in a couple of hours. / neutral

    Since not only parasites, but also humans are treated, it is impossible to use undiluted kerosene. A severe chemical burn with peeling of the skin is not a measure that should be paid to get rid of parasites.

    The question arises: how to get rid of lice, so as not to harm yourself even more. Just have to do some gentle procedures.

    Kerosene allows you to simultaneously solve several problems:

    1. Adult insects die already during the first procedure.
    2. A large number of nits are detached from the hair, some of them are washed off, some are combed out.
    3. Those nits that remain on the hair become imago after a few days, but the smell of kerosene causes them to leave a not too comfortable zone.

    The mechanism of getting rid of pubic lice is similar to the sequence in which the disposal of head parasites occurs.

    Step by Step Method — How to Remove Kerosene Lice

    First you need to prepare a solution that will process the hair. To reduce the aggressiveness of the tool, kerosene from lice and nits is diluted with vegetable oil. Oil protects the skin from burns, and hair from damage.

    Tip: Aviation and tractor kerosene for lice control is better not to use. The composition of these mixtures include additives that enhance their aggressive effects on the skin and hair.

    For the preparation of therapeutic mixture take:

    Proportions — in equal quantities, for example, 100 g of sunflower oil is mixed with 100 g of kerosene.

    1. This mixture is applied over the entire length to dry hair. For application it is convenient to use a brush for dyeing hair.
    2. Next you need to arrange something like a sealed chamber. For this, the head is wrapped in plastic and reconciliation is wrapped in a towel.
    3. On the hair, the mixture is kept for 1.5 hours.

    It is better to wash it off with soap, lumpy tar soap is ideal for this. After washing the hair should be rinsed with acetic water.

    neutral title = «Acetic water» In 1 liter of water dilute 100 g of vinegar. / neutral

    Now you need to do combing, as it is impossible to remove kerosene lice without this stage. The occupation is unpleasant and painstaking, so you should be patient and comb as many insects and their eggs as possible. To simplify the procedure, long hair can be slightly shortened. If the change of image is not included in the plans, then you will have to accept the fact that the procedure will not be quick.

    Reprocessing

    Usually, kerosene from lice and nits doesn’t help at once. After 8 — 10 days you need to carry out another procedure. By this time, lice will hatch out of nits, but they will not have time to lay eggs yet. The second processing repeats the first one exactly:

    • Application of the solution to the hair,
    • Curing under film and towel
    • Flushing
    • Rinsing
    • Combing out

    Apply kerosene with oil with a cotton pad or gauze cloth. Each strand is soaked with this tool.

    neutral With a strong burning sensation, the mixture is immediately washed off the hair. / neutral

    A slight burning sensation, like a tingling sensation, is considered normal during this procedure. If there are no sensations, the processing time can be increased to 2 hours.

    Men with facial hair are advised to either shave or do the same with a beard and mustache. For wrapping in this case it is convenient to use food wrap. It will hold better than regular polyethylene.

    How to use in children

    Children time of the procedure is reduced to one hour, while it is necessary to periodically check the condition of the skin under the shelter. If a child complains that he can no longer tolerate, the kerosene mixture should be washed off immediately.

    Children’s skin is very sensitive, so some children can not tolerate the application of kerosene. For them, it is better to choose another, less aggressive means. If there is such an opportunity, you should seek help from specialists.

    There are cases when the child received a severe burn, followed by long-term treatment. It is much safer to purchase a special tool than to risk the health of your own child.

    Body lice

    Now that you know how to get rid of lice on your head, we’ll tell you about parasites that have settled in underwear using kerosene:

    1. All contaminated clothes are put in a large basin and filled with water with kerosene.Components taken in the ratio: 10 liters of water — 1 liter of kerosene.
    2. Underwear should stand in this solution for at least half a day, or even better — a day.
    3. After that, you need to wash it thoroughly, and after drying, iron it.

    Especially diligently iron out the seams, since it is precisely in them that the laundry lice are hidden. For greater confidence that absolutely all insects and nits will be destroyed, the steam supply function is used when treating the seams with an iron.

    Prevention

    If you do not want to use chemistry, there are medical combs on sale now that can help you get rid of lice and nits. There is one more tool, but it will not suit everyone. This is a haircut. No hair — no problem.

    Lice do not look at what kind of life a person leads, what his wealth is and how carefully he takes care of himself. Even in the most exemplary school there is no guarantee that one day the child will not bring home parasites.

    1. To prevent re-infection and to protect other family members from it, all things that come into contact with the patient’s hair with lice are well washed, and if it is possible, they also boil. They can be soaked in a disinfectant solution.
    2. You should never wear someone else’s hats, and everyone should have their own comb.
    3. In the public pool do not neglect the requirements to use a rubber cap. It will protect you from lice infestation.

    If you do decide to apply kerosene for lice and nits, you need to know how to use it and follow all the rules closely. This will protect against skin lesions and prevent the agent from igniting. Do not carry out the procedure near an open flame!

    How to use kerosene for lice: methods of removing parasites

    Pediculosis is a serious psychological and physiological problem for children and adults.

    With the development of medicine and pharmacology, doctors have learned how to effectively deal with the disease, new modern methods of dealing with various parasites have appeared, a real fight is being conducted in children’s institutions, but the problem of lice is far from a final decision, and proven folk remedies have not lost their relevance.

    When will this method of struggle

    Lice are blood-sucking parasitic insects, the size is up to 5 mm, they are capable of rapid reproduction. On the head, its hairy part, lice can parasitize up to 45 days.

    These parasites can provoke various skin diseases, they must be removed immediately upon detection. Parasites feed on blood and dead skin scales on the head. Depending on the location distinguish head, clothes and pubic. To derive each of them is quite difficult.

    Symptoms of the disease appear within a few days after infection and are expressed primarily in very severe itching of the scalp. Also among the symptoms can be identified irritability, insomnia, various rashes. Derivation of parasites with kerosene is possible in all cases.

    Complications caused by head lice are extremely dangerous, treatment with kerosene is better not to apply in the presence of pathologies such as:

    • Chronic dermatitis.
    • Lymphadenitis.
    • Furunculosis.
    • Sepsis.
    • Secondary skin infections.

    Why exactly this option?

    Lice are sufficiently resistant to various special means, to get rid of them, we have to use combined methods of their destruction.

    They learned to poison the parasites in ancient times, and already in the nineteenth century, people knew how to remove lice by this means. He was very actively able to use during the war against lice, because other means were not available.

    How to remove kerosene lice, many grandmothers know. The method of preparation of this drug is quite simple: dilute kerosene with water and apply on the scalp for a certain time. You can use this tool as much as you need to get rid of parasites.

    The main thing is to do it right. However, its use requires certain knowledge and care. Lice in the process of life lay numerous eggs. Each louse is able to lay up to 10 eggs per day, from which the larvae hatch within a week.

    Kerosene is a strong insecticidal agent, its mechanism of action on lice is complex:

    • Lice are killed by the choking effect of kerosene.
    • It causes intoxication in parasites.
    • If kerosene is used, asphyxia develops in parasites and spiracles are blocked.
    • Being an organic solvent, it softens the chitinous cover of parasites.
    • Lice do not tolerate the sharp smell of kerosene, it scares them.

    Method of use

    It is quite simple to bring out kerosene lice, it is the most affordable way, you only need to dilute kerosene with water, but you need to remember that this method has a number of contraindications, especially when treating children. In order not to harm the child and the treatment was really correct and effective, certain precautions should be observed.

    Kerosene can cause skin burns if used, rubbing very intensely into the scalp. It is also possible irritation of the mucous membranes and respiratory tract.

    It is important to strictly observe the exposure time (no more than 30 minutes), as well as the type of kerosene: in no case can you use automobile or aviation kerosene, as you can cause an instant scalp burn.

    Before using kerosene, it is advisable to check the allergic reaction to it, for this you can dilute the kerosene and apply a little solution on the ulnar fold with a cotton swab and leave it for half an hour. If there is no redness or rash, the recipe can be used.

    This method will get rid of unpleasant consequences. If an allergic reaction occurs, you should stop using kerosene and use a good anti-pediculosal shampoo purchased from a pharmacy.

    To reduce the negative impact, you can use the following method: mix kerosene with regular shampoo and olive or sunflower oil, apply on the head and hold for 15-20 minutes. This recipe is particularly suitable for treating children.

    The exposure time can be increased if lice and nits are found on the hair in large quantities. Keep the mixture better in the refrigerator. It is necessary to treat all family members to get rid of re-infection. How many times to carry out the procedure depends on the effectiveness of the treatment.

    It should be borne in mind that kerosene adversely affects the condition and appearance of hair. If you keep it on your hair for a long time, it will lead to their discoloration and burning out; it affects the dyed hair especially badly, this indicates against the use of kerosene on women’s hair. In addition, kerosene long retains the smell, which is very difficult to remove.

    When removing lice and nits, you need to carefully monitor that kerosene does not get on the mucous membranes of the mouth and eyes, if this was not avoided, you should immediately wash your nose, eyes and mouth with plenty of clean running water.

    Reviews of kerosene, as a method of removing lice and nits, are very positive, but sometimes it is necessary to enhance the effect of the use of this tool.So, it is strongly recommended to use special combs from lice and nits, which are sold in pharmacies, after hair treatment.

    So bring the parasites will be faster. Using a comb, you need to repeatedly comb the hair. This will help to get rid of the weakened lice left on the head and parts of the nits stuck in the hair.

    The use of such a comb is very effective. Physicians often oppose the use of kerosene in the fight against parasites, the decision to use it is taken personally by the patient.

    The advantage of this method is that the patient’s head can be processed at home. The arguments against the use of each patient takes into account at its discretion.

    Removing lice and nits is not such an easy task, it takes time, and the procedure itself is not very pleasant. The duration of treatment depends on how many parasites there are on the head and how effectively different methods are used.

    Treatment of lice folk remedies

    Hearing the word «pediculosis», most people will think — what is it? But it is worth mentioning lice, everyone will immediately understand what is being said. These small bloodsucking insects are known to many.

    Even the most clean person can not be one hundred percent insured against these parasites. Of course, the poor population and people who do not follow the rules of personal hygiene are most susceptible to this disease.

    On the human body can parasitize 3 types of lice — head, pubic and ward.

    The first type of lice chooses the scalp. These lice are small in size (up to 3 mm) and usually have a grayish-white color. Pubic louses (ploshchitsy) live in the area of ​​the hairy part of the pubis and genitals and have a size of up to 2 mm.

    If you do not start to get rid of these parasites in time, they can multiply and settle on other parts of the body — in the armpits, chest, mustache, beard, eyelashes, etc.

    Body lice are predominantly in the folds of clothes and bed linen. This type of lice is larger in size than head and pubic (up to 5 mm).

    Those areas of the body that are most closely in contact with clothing and bedding suffer from their bites. This is the loins, scapulae, armpits, neck. On the human body, this type of lice is moved only to drink blood.

    How do lice appear?

    Naturally, the appearance of all three types of lice in humans can be prevented by hygiene. But there are cases when cleanliness does not protect against such «guests».

    Long thick hair is the most fertile soil for her. And besides, girls tend to ask their girlfriends for a comb to fix their hair. Therefore, you always need to be prepared and know what folk remedies for lice exist.

    You can also transfer lice to your body from other contaminated items — towels, bed linen, etc. You can meet these parasites in baths, pools, saunas.

    In other words, in those places where there is a possibility of the contact of your personal belongings with the things of other people, which can be a “home” for these insects.

    Pubic lice are transmitted during sexual intercourse, sometimes through bedding and other household items.

    Symptoms of the disease

    The most important symptom of pediculosis is severe itching. Head lice dominate the hair part of the head. Accordingly, the person will be disturbed by an itch in the head, on the back of the head, behind the ears. The presence of ploshchits will be indicated by severe itching in the pubic zone. Body lice will be disturbed in the tight fitting area of ​​clothing to the body.

    Of course, severe itching interferes with rest, resulting in disturbed sleep, a person becomes irritable, loses his appetite, it is difficult for him to concentrate on work.

    Lice treatment folk remedies

    Excretion of lice at home can be varied, depending on what type of these parasites settled on your body.

    Recipe number 1. Salt and vinegar in the fight against nits and lice. Agree, it is very unpleasant when head lice annoy you. Treatment of folk remedies will help you quickly and effectively get rid of them. Moreover, even ordinary wine vinegar and salt can help in this matter.

    Lotions should be kept on the head all day, but at the same time three times a day to change the compress. This tool not only helps to get rid of lice and nits, but also soothes the skin, reducing itching.

    Lice species

    • Head. As the name implies, they live in the hair on the head, in the mustache, beard and armpits. This is the safest species that does not cause the development of other diseases.
    • Pubic. This species of insect settles in the pubic zone. If measures are taken in time, then they will not spread further; if they do not do it right away, they can move to the beard or to the armpits. They, like their brethren, feed on blood. If you get rid of their habitat, that is, hair, they will die out within two days.
    • Payments. They settle in clothes and bedding.They suck human blood in areas that are as close as possible to bedding. For example, if you sleep on your back, then that is where they will eat. These are the most dangerous lice, because they carry typhus.

    Causes of infection

    There is a stereotype that only those who are not sufficiently monitoring their cleanliness can become infected with parasites. It is a mythAfter all, even the richest and cleanest personalities can suffer from this disease. The fact is that the appearance of lice on the human body can be caused by the following reasons:

    • Trying on hats. More than a third of infections occurred precisely because a person tried on a hat in a store or on the market. Insects can stay there from a former buyer who has been infected.
    • Using alien combs. Many places write that in no case you can not use someone else’s comb and give someone your own. But some ignore such advice, as a result of which they get parasites in their hair. Remember that even your best friend may have a disease that she herself does not realize. This is not uncommon.
    • Public places. Body louses are found in bathhouses, saunas and swimming pools, they can very quickly hit a person by moving from the benches or the floor, where they are from personal belongings and towels of other visitors.
    • Sexual intercourse. If your partner has pubic lice, it’s almost one hundred percent likely that they will move to you. To avoid this, it is better to get rid of pubic hair and often take a shower.

    In each of the situations described, the usual kerosene will help get rid of the misfortune, this is the most proven tool that has been successful for a long time. Remember that the sooner you start taking action, the greater success in the fight against parasites awaits you.

    What kerosene to use

    Kerosene is a mixture of combustible carbon, produced as a result of oil refining. It looks like a clear liquid with a yellow tinge, has a sharp smell. About a hundred years ago, it was used to light up houses, to cook it, to heat it. Today, these functions have sunk into oblivion, now it is used only for fuel for rockets, as well as in some types of industry.

    In the area of ​​lice, this product is very popular. First, it is effective, sometimes even more effective than expensive medications. Secondly, economically. The product helps both from the main and from the pubic insects. But he is very aggressive, because in its composition there is refined oil. You need not just wash their heads or other places, it is important to use it properly.

    Most of all for removing lice fit clarified or technical product, but in no case aviation or autotractor kerosene can be taken. There are mixed foreign additives that may be hazardous to human health. Not only will you ruin your hair badly if you take such a remedy, but it can also penetrate the skin into the bloodstream or cause a burn.

    Concentrated means in any case apply dangerous, it is best to dilute it with oil. In former times, of course, a pure product was used, but its mixtures with oils were used to fix the result. But today such tough measures come to nothing, it is better to use a diluted mass several times than to suffer from chemical burns and hair loss.

    Application Methods

    Another recipe is to put one spoon of kerosene in a bowl, three — honey, four — water and one — shampoo. It is best to act with a teaspoon, in this case, the resulting mass will be sufficient for treating hair of medium length. For very long ones, you can multiply the amount of each ingredient by two or three. After you prepare the mixture, take a cotton pad and apply it to the entire length of the hair, especially carefully go through the roots. The shag should be dry.You need to process not only curls, but also eyebrows, men have a beard, sideburns and mustaches. After the mask is evenly distributed over your hair, cover your head with a plastic bag or wrap, and then a towel. It takes about two hours to walk with her, the owners of soft skin — an hour.

    When time is up, rinse your head under the tap with shampoo, then you can rinse it with water with lemon juice or vinegar, this will help to slightly repel the smell. Then take a special comb (they are sold in pharmacies) and comb their hair as carefully as possible so that you can remove the dead insects and their eggs from there.

    Three days after the procedure, be sure to repeat it, but now use a mixture of a teaspoon of kerosene and fifty milliliters of olive or sunflower oil. Do everything as before, but keep the mask on your head for about an hour. If it burns very hard, enough for half an hour. After that, wash your hair with shampoo and a solution of water and vinegar. If you have a lot of lice, you will need three procedures, the latter will need to be carried out in the same way as the second.

    Another recipe includes badger fat, honey, milk and, of course, kerosene itself. Mix three tablespoons of badger fat with 200 g of low-fat milk and three small spoons of kerosene. Add a couple of spoons of honey. Apply it on dry hair, wrap with a film and a towel, soak for at least half an hour. Wash off with water and vinegar. You can try to add to the mixture a few drops of essential oil, especially effective against the smell of lemon, orange or eucalyptus. You can purchase them at your local pharmacy.

    Do not forget that it is not enough to treat only the hairy areas of the body, it is important to get rid of lice and nits also on bedding and clothes. Best of all, of course, throw away the infected tissue, but if this is not possible, wash them in boiling water with the addition of kerosene. If the fabric is too soft, fold it into a strong plastic bag and process it with a few drops of mineral oil. Furniture also needs to be processed: soak a cotton swab in the tool, apply all the furniture joints, the corners of the cabinets, the seams of the sofas, and so on. Do not forget to ventilate the room.

    Is it safe to use kerosene for lice

    In modern realities, kerosene from lice and nits is used extremely rarely. The reason for this is quite clear: if in the past there were almost no effective drugs against nits and lice, especially in the republics of the USSR, now there are a lot of them.

    Kerosene for lice and nits — how to use

    It is no longer necessary to destroy parasites with kerosene, which, moreover, is not safe during such exploitation. However, if there are no analogues, then you can get rid of lice and other hair parasites using this tool.

    How does he act

    Despite the seeming absurdity, treatment with kerosene for lice does work, although not without harm to the human body. This tool allows you to poison the lice and nits, expelling them or destroying.

    Moreover, with the help of kerosene it is possible to get rid of other parasites of the skin and scalp, in particular, they can treat demodecosis of the scalp, but this is still not recommended.

    But why is kerosene so effective in cases when you need to remove lice? There are several reasons for this:

    • Lice die even after short-term contact with the mixture, as it passes freely through their chitinous shells and enters the respiratory system, causing suffocation.
    • If the louse dies on contact with the mixture, it’s more difficult with nits.

    Is it safe to remove lice in this way?

    Although it is effective to remove lice with kerosene, it can cause damage to human health, although it is insignificant (in cases where the treatment with this mixture is carried out correctly). To begin with, the treatment with this mixture is quite dangerous in terms of toxicity.

    Even if the treatment is carried out as correctly as possible and in compliance with all safety rules, burns of the skin can develop. The possible risk of burns can be reduced by reducing the amount of kerosene used in the treatment, but this does not always help.

    The second problem is the sharp and eruptive smell of the mixture, which is very difficult to remove in the shortest possible time.

    It can be expected that, after treatment with kerosene, a few more days the skin and hair will smell like it. Trying to create minimal proportions of kerosene is meaningless, the smell will be even when using a small and diluted amount of the mixture.

    The third and last problem is harm to the hair. After applying kerosene, hair modification should be expected. They will become dull and brittle, and perhaps even a brief increase in hair loss, which, however, does not need treatment and will pass by itself.

    In fact, using this mixture in treating a child for lice can create a lot of trouble. The fact is that the child’s skin is even more susceptible to the toxic effects of kerosene, which is why burns are not just not avoided in most cases, but they will also be stronger than in adults.

    Moreover, penetration and prolonged contact of kerosene with the child’s skin is fraught with the development of chronic dermatitis (rosacea, perioral dermatitis, seborrhea), which will last for a lifetime and will require constant therapy.

    Hair can also be seriously affected, which is especially unacceptable in the case of girls.

    The version that kerosene can change the color and condition of hair for the rest of its life looks dubious, but the fact that these changes can remain for several months is quite real.

    Modern medicine postulates: kerosene for the treatment of lice, nits and other parasites in children does not apply. To treat pediculosis and other parasitic diseases of the scalp in children, as well as in adults, you need specialized drugs.

    What type of mixture is suitable

    There are several varieties of kerosene, but you can use lightening to slay lice. This type of mixture is used to refuel classic kerosene lamps.

    The remaining types of mixture are prohibited to use, as highly toxic and in some cases may even be the cause of death. It is important to note that even the most harmless type of kerosene — illuminating — should be diluted, since the highly concentrated mixture is very harmful.

    Security measures

    Before using this method of killing lice and nits, you should be familiar with the safety measures and recommendations that can reduce the risk of burns and other side effects of kerosene to a minimum.

    The safety measures for the use of kerosene for the treatment of lice and nits are as follows:

    1. When handling kerosene, it is important to remember that it is a combustible substance, therefore all medical procedures should be carried out far from the fire or devices that may spark,
    2. This mixture is an allergen, and although kerosene allergy is rare, it can still occur, which requires pre-applying a small amount of the substance to the skin in order to detect the body’s response,
    3. The occurrence of itching, dizziness or agonizing burning sensation when in contact with the mixture should cause the procedure to be immediately stopped and
    4. Against the background of the use of kerosene, it is recommended to use other means of lice (preferably approved by official medicine), an integrated approach — a guarantee of the destruction of parasites,
    5. After the procedure, you should thoroughly wash your hair, which will allow to significantly reduce the likelihood of burns and partially remove the unpleasant smell from the mixture
    6. Plan out the entire procedure in advance, determine the exact time that will be spent on its implementation, and place a bowl of water next to it in order to wash your hair as soon as possible after the procedure.
    7. When the substance is applied to the head of a child, it should be diluted in order to reduce the concentration (but it is better not to use kerosene at all to treat lice in children).

    How to use kerosene to remove parasites

    Much has been written about how to get lice out with kerosene. There are a huge number of ways to carry out this procedure, but we will focus only on one classical scheme that has high efficiency.

    This scheme is simple:

    • Moisten a cotton swab or disc with a mixture, and then use it to apply the product on the head (hair should be dried before the procedure begins!), Including using cotton wool over the skin.
    • After processing all areas, you should put on the head a plastic bag or any cap that does not allow the substance to pass through.
    • The question of how much kerosene to keep on your head does not have a definite answer.

    On average, one hour is enough, at the end of which the mixture should be washed off as quickly as possible.

    After washing off the mixture, it is necessary to comb through the hair locks and divide them into strands, preventing the hair from adhering to each other.

    Kerosene for lice and nits: how to use at home

Let’s consider how to use the correct kerosene from your home condition.

    Types of lice and how to appear

    On the human body can parasitize 3 types of lice — head, pubic and ward.

    1. The first type of lice chooses the scalp. These lice are small in size (up to 3 mm) and usually have a grayish-white color.
    2. Pubic louses (ploshchitsy) live in the area of ​​the hairy part of the pubis and genitals and have a size of up to 2 mm.

    If you do not start to get rid of these parasites in time, they can multiply and settle on other parts of the body — in the armpits, chest, mustache, beard, eyelashes, etc. Body lice are predominantly in the folds of clothes and bed linen.

    This type of lice is larger in size than head and pubic (up to 5 mm). Those areas of the body that are most closely in contact with clothing and bedding suffer from their bites. This is the loins, scapulae, armpits, neck. On the human body, this type of lice is moved only to drink blood.

    Naturally, the appearance of all three types of lice in humans can be prevented by hygiene. But there are cases when cleanliness does not protect against such «guests». Head louse, for example, is easy to pick up when you try on a regular hat if you have been tried on by an infected louse.

    And besides, girls tend to ask their girlfriends for a comb to fix their hair. Therefore, you always need to be prepared and know what folk remedies for lice exist. You can also transfer lice to your body from other contaminated items — towels, bed linen, etc.

    You can meet these parasites in baths, pools, saunas. In other words, in those places where there is a possibility of the contact of your personal belongings with the things of other people, which can be a “home” for these insects. Pubic lice are transmitted during sexual intercourse, sometimes through bedding and other household items.

    How to use kerosene — not to harm the health

    Pediculosis brings many troubles and disorders of the physiological and living standards of people. Pharmacology and medicine are developing rapidly, there are new drugs against blood-sucking insects. Many different remedies have already been invented, but there are proven recipes, such as removing lice with kerosene.

    It is known that grandmothers and grandfathers, who remember the Soviet times perfectly, with the first symptoms of lice, removed them with kerosene. This is the production of distillation of crude oil, it is used as a combustible mixture. The composition includes liquid hydrocarbons. It has its own characteristics:

    1. Transparent color,
    2. It has a yellowish tint, but most often the mixture is colorless,
    3. Oily,
    4. It has a peculiar and sharp smell.

    It is used quite widely, namely:

    • as fuel
    • combustible material in the manufacture of porcelain and glass products,
    • as a heating and lighting liquid used for household appliances,
    • as a material for the petroleum refining industry,
    • analogue of diesel fuel
    • as a solvent liquid,
    • for getting rid of rust
    • as a pest control against parasitic insects.

    Our grandmothers and great-grandmothers quite effectively used it against pediculosis. This effectively helped them get rid of it at any (even neglected) developmental stage. A mixture with a huge effect on lice and nits.

    Before other medical products, the liquid has several advantages:

    1. Strong peculiar smell scares lice,
    2. The chemical composition poisons pests,
    3. Perfectly helps to tear the nits from the hair and allows for combing with a frequent comb.

    Acts as follows: the components of a chemical nature destroy this insect, penetrate into the shell, intensively clogging its respiratory system. Louse ceases to receive oxygen and dies.

    What explains the effectiveness of the use of fuel

    All children in school or kindergarten should be prevented from lice. We rarely think that even the most clean and well-groomed child may be prone to pediculosis. If it is too late and the child caught the parasites, do not panic — there is an opportunity to remove the lice in natural ways.

    A school, playground, clubs or kindergarten are some of the places where you can get pediculosis. This gives the child great difficulties and threatens health and communication, in addition, medications for lice contain toxic substances, which is very harmful not only for the scalp of the child, but also for the whole body.

    Medicines for lice, which can be purchased at the pharmacy, are still manufactured using toxic ingredients. Almost all of them are dangerous to the child with frequent use or at a fairly young age. Before use, be sure to read the instructions and follow the instructions exactly.

    Or resort to alternative — therapy with natural and safe methods of getting rid of lice. The abundance of various means of lice on the pharmacy shelves leads us to assume that this product is in demand, which means that head lice can be detected in each of us.

    Treatment of pediculosis with kerosene has been used for decades.

    In the middle and the end of the last century, it was not so easy to get a safe and at the same time effective pharmacological drug in pharmacies, and therefore folk remedies were very popular. Kerosene is a product of oil refining that has a toxic effect on living organisms.

    When using this oily liquid, the effect of the destruction of parasites is achieved by the following mechanism of action:

    1. Kerosene has a suffocating effect on lice, penetrating into their airways and clogging them. When ingested, intoxication develops.
    2. The oily liquid dissolves the shell of the nits and thus contributes to their weakening on the hair. Due to this, the nits after processing can be easily removed by combing.
    3. Kerosene scares off parasites with its strong smell.
    4. This liquid can also be used to disinfect clothes.

    Treatment with kerosene lice is rated highly, but this remedy is less and less used due to the large number of possible side effects. If you do not know how much kerosene to use, in what dilution and how long to keep on your head, then you can end up with more problems.

    It is not recommended to treat with kerosene for people with allergic reactions, hypersensitivity of the skin, diseases of the respiratory system. The children’s organism reacts especially acutely to the aggressive and toxic effects of kerosene; therefore, resorting to the use of this method of getting rid of lice and nits is necessary only in the most extreme cases.

    After kerosene treatment, the hair is changed for the better. Oily liquid is difficult to wash off the head, the hair after it is badly combed, becomes dull and brittle. Not always with the help of kerosene, you can get rid of nits immediately.

    In order to prevent the appearance of offspring of lice, nits will have to comb. Use kerosene effectively and against pubic lice.

    To disinfect clothes into the water for washing add a few milliliters of odorous liquid and stretch things in hot water, followed by drying and ironing. But all the advantages of using kerosene have a significant negative — persistent odor, which is unpleasant to many.

    The smell on the hair, clothes, in the apartment can be kept for several days after the treatment of pediculosis. If you decide to use kerosene to get rid of parasites, you need to know the basic rules and safety measures for applying this method.

    Special care is taken with the use of different folk methods, if the treatment is carried out for children of different ages. To date, many anti-pediculosis drugs are produced and sold without toxic effects on the body, children tolerate their use well, and the desired effect can be achieved in one treatment session.

    How to remove eggs lice

    Instead of mayonnaise, you can repeat the whole procedure by taking petroleum jelly. It should be borne in mind that the only way to remove petrolatum from a child’s hair is to apply a large amount of baby oil on top and wipe the hair well with a towel or napkin and then thoroughly wring out the remaining oil.

    After washing the hair and scalp with shampoo and hot water three times (the water should be as hot as the baby can withstand, but avoid burns).

    Vaseline can be left on the hair at night, under the shower cap. However, you should not do this using mayonnaise, as it becomes toxic outside the refrigerator, and the child may brush his head during sleep and then put his fingers in his mouth.

    If you do not trust the above remedies, you can give preference to natural lice shampoo, which is easy to prepare at home. Mix five teaspoons of olive or coconut oil with five drops of essential oil of tea tree, five drops of rosemary oil and the same amount of lavender oil, menthol oil and eucalyptus essential oil.

    Rinse the hair thoroughly without conditioner or balm at this stage, as the mixture of oils will make the hair soft and manageable. Consider the following:

    • Breathing a child under 5 years of age may be difficult when using eucalyptus oil.
    • Menthol oil increases blood pressure and can be dangerous in hypertension.
    • Menthol and rosemary oil is forbidden to use during pregnancy.Do not include them in the shampoo in this situation.

    Removal of detected parasites using kerosene will be effective and as safe as possible if you follow several rules during the procedure.

    1. For the destruction of lice is best to buy technical or lighting kerosene. These types of liquids have the lowest toxicity. For a one-time treatment is enough one cup of this tool.
    2. Treatment is safer to produce diluted kerosene. To do this, two teaspoons of olive oil should be mixed with a spoonful of shampoo and a tablespoon of kerosene.

    This washing liquid is applied to the hair, especially attention should be paid to the roots of curls.

  • After the distribution of funds on the head wear a plastic cap and in this form it is necessary to go at least an hour. Removal will be more effective if you keep the kerosene mixture on your head for about two hours, but this method is not suitable for people with sensitive skin.
  • After the time has elapsed, the hair is thoroughly washed and at the same time combed out, removing nits and dead insects from them.
  • Additionally, after washing with shampoo, you can use water with vinegar diluted in it for rinsing. Vinegar also destroys the sticky composition of the shell of the nits and thus facilitates their combing.
  • After preprocessing after three days it is necessary to carry out the secondary one. In this case, you need to dilute the spoon of kerosene in 50 ml of olive oil and apply on hair.

    Treatment with kerosene hair is best left in an extreme case of dealing with head lice. The acquisition of modern anti-pediculosis drugs will allow the destruction of parasites quickly and most importantly — without prejudice to health.

    After the hair is washed with shampoo, apply apple vinegar on them and on the scalp. He will be able to split the glue that nits are attached to the hair shaft. Then rinse the head again with hot water.

    Most of the nits (eggs and larvae of lice) can be easily washed with water after applying vinegar, however, some of them can still remain. Mayonnaise does not kill young nits, because it does not affect the shell of eggs. Therefore, children infected with pediculosis should not be sent to school or kindergarten until they are completely free from parasites.

    So, the remaining nits can be combed with a special comb, which is sold in a pharmacy and is designed specifically for such procedures. After all procedures, use good lighting to carefully inspect the child’s hair for any remaining parasites (nits are better removed from dry hair).

    Divide hair into small sections and check, pay more attention to the areas behind the ears, above the neck and hairline. Nits affected hair can be cleaned with a comb or cut each individually.

    Infected hair and nits eggs placed in a container with vinegar or hot soapy water with the addition of ammonia solution. If a large number of nits remain on the hair, you can also remove them with vinegar. Dampen a towel in a solution of vinegar and water (in equal proportions) and wrap the baby’s hair with it.

    Leave the towel for an hour for the best effect. Then you need to dry your head and re-check.

    In quite rare cases, nits can also affect the baby’s eyebrows and eyelashes. You need to gently lubricate these areas with petroleum jelly so that the mixture does not get into your eyes. Do petroleum jelly four times a day.

    What are parasites affecting human skin?

    Yours — a small insect smaller than the bead, not exceeding 4 mm. With tenacious paws, lightly mobile, it easily clings to the skin of a person in its hairy part, for her favorite activity to enjoy blood, which gives a lot of problems to a person. The persistent itching of the head, due to constant scratching, contributes to the appearance of wounds on the skin.But one of the worst consequences of lice activity is carrying various infectious diseases such as typhus and relapsing fever, trench fever.

    Nits — lice eggs. Each nit contains one egg, packed in a transparent shell of sticky, fast-setting substance. Their sizes are small from 0.4 to 0.8 mm in length, and therefore, they can be easily confused with dandruff. However, it is still possible to distinguish between nits; it is enough to ruffle the hair or blow it on them. Nits hold tight on the hair, and bring them not so easy.

    Kerosene — as a means of getting rid of lice and nits

    The most popular way to get rid of lice — short hair, but what to do when you do not want to part with long beautiful hair? There is a huge number of different methods and one of them, which was used even by our grandmothers — is the use of kerosene.

    Kerosene — a product obtained by the distillation of oil, an ideal fuel, a mixture of combustible hydrocarbons. Yellowish transparent liquid with a strong odor, which today is used only as a fuel for a rocket engine. Can I use it?

    Efficiency of application

    The effectiveness of the method of use of kerosene is achieved by suffocating effects on the parasites, instantly intoxication of their organisms. Kerosene, a very aggressive agent, an oily liquid, penetrating through the shell consisting of chitin into the insect’s spirass, blocks it, limiting the flow of oxygen.

    Prevention of the appearance of parasites

    Of course, each disease is easier to prevent weeks to heal. It should be attentive, namely:

    1. Comply with hygiene standards
    2. To keep track of your hair, they should always be well combed and laid.
    3. Try to avoid contact with people living in unsanitary conditions.
    4. Be sure to take a shower after visiting the pool or swimming in the sea.
    5. Do not use household items and hygiene belonging to possibly infected people (comb, barrettes, pillows, hair bands, etc.).

    Does kerosene help from nits?

    Practice shows that kerosene kills nits, but not nearly as reliably as adult lice. The point here is that the nit itself is well protected by a dense shell, and its breathing proceeds much less intensively than the lice breathe themselves.

    As a result, in order to destroy nits with kerosene, they need to be influenced by a substance of high concentration (pure kerosene), and for a long time (several hours). In this case, there is a high risk of a severe chemical burn with further flaking of the burned skin and hair loss.

    Accordingly, for removal of kerosene nits in real conditions, a special method of step-by-step destruction is used. Knowing how to get rid of kerosene lice using this method, you can completely remove both the parasites and nits in just two or three procedures.

    “Medfox bought, I was terribly sprinkled from him. I tried vinegar — there were nits even after two times. I thought whether it was possible to bring out lice with kerosene, everyone is just talking about it. I tried. It turned out that kerosene is much more effective than all expensive shampoos! Twice with an interval of 8 days I processed my head and forgot about this attack. Just remember to use kerosene for lice, you need to properly follow the recipe. And then you can burn yourself together with lice and all your hair. ”

    How to properly remove kerosene lice

    Before you remove kerosene lice, you must prepare the liquid itself for use. It is desirable for this to take lighting or technical kerosene. Avtotraktorny and aviation are less preferred because of the greater aggressiveness and the possible presence of extraneous additives.

    For a one-time treatment, a cup of kerosene would be enough.

    In the simplest case, kerosene is applied to the hair and scalp with a cotton swab. Hair should be dry.The entire hairy part of the head, eyebrows, neck are processed as carefully as possible; for men, sideburns and beard are treated. When removing pubic lice, kerosene is applied to pubic hair, in the groin as a whole and in the area of ​​the anus.

    To reduce the harmful effects on the skin, you can also add a spoonful of kerosene to the shampoo, which then thoroughly lather wet hair — in this case, the treatment is, in fact, an emulsion of kerosene in a detergent. When treating pediculosis in children, it is imperative to dilute kerosene either in the indicated way or in vegetable oil (see below).

    There are several popular recipes based on diluted kerosene, which allows you to remove lice without the risk of seriously damaging the skin:

    • For two teaspoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of kerosene and a teaspoon of shampoo are taken. This combination significantly reduces the aggressive effect of kerosene on the hair and skin.
    • For three tablespoons of honey, a teaspoon of kerosene, a teaspoon of shampoo and four tablespoons of hot water are taken, everything is mixed and applied to the head as soon as possible.

    People of the «old school» often recommend that the first treatment of the head be sure to produce pure kerosene, and the second one — the control one — with a mixture of oils. However, you need to understand that this approach carries serious risks of burning the skin.

    After applying kerosene, you should put a plastic bag on your hair and wrap a towel over the top. Keep kerosene lice on the head should be within 1.5-2 hours. With less exposure, it is possible to keep the lice alive.

    After this period, the towel and bag are removed, and the head is washed several times with shampoo. Washing the hair with a weak solution of acetic acid is also effective — this additionally weakens the attachment of nits to the hair.

    For children with their delicate skin, it is advisable to keep kerosene for no more than 1 hour. Three days after the first treatment, the hair is treated with a mixture of 50 grams of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of kerosene. The mixture also keeps on the head for about an hour, and then washed off with water with a small amount of vinegar or citric acid. Then the head is washed with shampoo.

    After another three days, you should repeat the treatment solution with oil or honey. With such a phased treatment, the skin on the child’s head will not suffer, and the lice will die.

    “They tried to poison the lice with kerosene from the little one. It was something. The child yells, the stench is unbearable, this filth from the head immediately begins to spread. They were held for only half an hour, but the cry was as if Masha had been planted in a frying pan. Interestingly, the second time I didn’t have to do anything — the lice died out all at once. ”

    To remove body lice, contaminated clothing is soaked in water with a significant amount of kerosene — a liter of kerosene should be taken in a 10-liter basin of water and held for half a day. After that, things are washed, dried and ironed.

    Additional enhancement of the effect of kerosene

    After treating the hair with kerosene, it is highly recommended to comb the hair with special combs for lice. This will remove not yet dead, but weakened parasites and part of the unglued from the nits.

    In children, with careful combing of the hair immediately after treatment and for the next two to three days, you can completely remove the parasites from the head and not re-process the kerosene.

    If the child has a noticeable allergic reaction to kerosene, you should not save money and buy a reliable pediculicidal lice shampoo. These shampoos are more effective than kerosene and are almost always safer.

    Also, do not forget (especially if you have no money and no kerosene) that the most effective way to get rid of lice is to shave your head bald. It is both simple and safe and reliable.

    Action on nits

    Empirically, it was determined that kerosene is not able to kill all nits. The problem is that the nit has a sufficiently strong protective shell. In addition, her breathing is much slower than that of an adult.

    Logically, to effectively poison nits with kerosene, you need to use it clean. In addition, to keep the combustible mixture on the head will take 4-5 hours. Lice and nits, of course, die. But the side effect will be a severe chemical burn, flaking of burned skin and baldness. It is unlikely that someone is satisfied.

    Will help get rid of nits special method — step by step destruction. It involves the use of kerosene (in a diluted state or as an ingredient in «grandmother’s» recipes) and combing hair with a frequent comb. Thus, in just 2-3 sessions, both lice and their nits are removed. One and all.

    Rules of application

    In order to qualitatively remove lice with kerosene at home, first of all, it is necessary to properly prepare its solution. For treatment, it is better to stay on lighting or technical kerosene.

    It is not recommended to use autotractor and aviation. This choice is due to the excessively high aggressiveness of the last two means and the content of foreign components in their composition.

    So, the combustible mixture is used in several versions:

    • one hundred percent (very carefully, but generally not recommended),
    • kerosene with vegetable oil and regular shampoo (the ratio of the components is 3: 2: 1),
    • kerosene with honey, warm water and regular shampoo (the ratio of components is 1: 9: 1: 12).

    For convenience, each proportion is measured in teaspoons.

    Action algorithm

    Kerosene against lice and nits should be applied as follows:

    1. Clean combustible mixture or prepared according to the «grandmother’s» recipe mass should be applied with a cotton swab (sponge) on a dry hair.
    2. It is necessary to process the entire hair-covered part of the head, eyebrows and even the neck. Men should also apply a “fragrant” product to the mustache and beard, if any. Hair in nose and ears can be ignored.
    3. After completing the application of the kerosene solution, the head should be wrapped with food film and from above — with a towel.

    On the 4th day after the first session it is necessary to hold the second. To do this, you will need to prepare a therapeutic mixture of kerosene (1 tsp.) And any vegetable oil (50 ml). Apply it on hair and hold for about 1 hour. Then rinse the hair with diluted vinegar and wash your hair with the usual shampoo.

    Holding time

    Many are concerned about the question of how much kerosene you need to keep on your head to ensure that you get rid of lice and not be left without hair.

    • If the treatment of pediculosis is carried out for an adult, it is necessary to withstand the combustible mixture for approximately 1.5-2 hours. Reducing time is fraught with a decrease in performance (some insects can survive and continue to multiply), and the increase — a chemical burn of the scalp.
    • When it comes to a child, the maximum exposure time is 1 hour. No way longer. This condition must be strictly observed.

    After the time has expired, you must remove the towel, plastic wrap and thoroughly wash the hair with regular shampoo. It is advisable to do this 3-4 times. In addition, as already mentioned, it is recommended to use vinegar (a weak solution) for rinsing the strands.

    Use kerosene to combat lice in very young children is unacceptable. Even a slight excess of the concentration of this fuel can lead to very sad consequences — the child suffocates. Handle the head of babies should be safe pharmacy drugs, in the instructions for which the permission for a particular age.

    Pediculosis can be treated with kerosene in older children according to “adult” recipes. However, you should always remember to reduce the exposure time of the funds on the hair strictly up to 1 hour. The skin of the child is very tender and susceptible to aggressive chemistry. It is advisable to repeat the session on the 4th day after the first one.

    We emphasize once again. It is extremely undesirable to use a kerosene product for children. Is that in a hopeless situation — when there is no opportunity to get to the pharmacy or buy a safe drug.

    Safety

    Gathered to poison the lice with kerosene? First, learn the safety when working with this flammable substance. Competent treatment of the hair guarantees getting rid of burns and subsequent baldness:

    1. Kerosene refers to flammable substances. Therefore, the preparation of therapeutic agents based on it and the treatment of their heads should be carried away from very hot objects and even more so from open fire.
    2. Before you begin treatment, you should literally put a drop of the mixture on a small area of ​​skin. If allergies are manifested — it is impossible to apply the tool.
    3. For the treatment of children’s heads, kerosene must be diluted so as not to burn the skin.
    4. Have itching, burning, dizziness (at least one symptom)? Rinse off immediately.
    5. The most effective method of killing lice is complex. The use of pharmaceutical preparations can be alternated with kerosene masks.
    6. It is very important to know how to dilute the fuel.
    7. Constantly monitor time. Overexposure even for 10 minutes is fraught with serious consequences.

    As you have already managed to make sure, caution, accuracy and attentiveness are the main qualities that will be needed when working with kerosene. You only need to use it correctly. Then he will become a powerful effective medicine.

    «Grandma’s» recipes

    Among the «grandmother’s» recipes you can find plenty of different uses of kerosene to combat not only lice, but also other parasites. They all help kill lice. Differences — only in the number of components that are needed to prevent skin burns.

    Consider the most popular and relatively safe folk remedies that can be used at home.

    How to get rid of lice at home

    All children in school or kindergarten should be prevented from lice. We rarely think that even the most clean and well-groomed child may be prone to pediculosis.

    If it is too late and the child caught the parasites, do not panic — there is an opportunity to remove the lice in natural ways.

    A school, playground, clubs or kindergarten are some of the places where you can get pediculosis.

    This gives the child great difficulties and threatens health and communication, in addition, medications for lice contain toxic substances, which is very harmful not only for the scalp of the child, but also for the whole body.

    Certain natural products can get rid of lice and bring them out completely.

    Medicines for lice, which can be purchased at the pharmacy, are still manufactured using toxic ingredients. Almost all of them are dangerous to the child with frequent use or at a fairly young age.

    Before use, be sure to read the instructions and follow the instructions exactly. Or resort to alternative — therapy with natural and safe methods of getting rid of lice. Read about them in our article.

    Natural remedies

    Lice can be easily, quickly and surely brought out with the help of mayonnaise. It is enough to purchase a can of fresh produce at the supermarket. You must apply mayonnaise on the scalp and hair of the child, not forgetting the area behind the ears and the back of the head.

    Then carefully pack in a sealed bag and discard all used means: a cap, a jar of mayonnaise, a comb and everything that came into contact with the parasites. Wash your hair with shampoo several times, until the hair is completely clean, and wash your hands with soap and water.

    Instead of mayonnaise, you can repeat the whole procedure by taking petroleum jelly. It should be borne in mind that the only way to remove petrolatum from a child’s hair is to apply a large amount of baby oil on top and wipe the hair well with a towel or napkin and then thoroughly wring out the remaining oil.

    After washing the hair and scalp with shampoo and hot water three times (the water should be as hot as the baby can withstand, but avoid burns).

    If you do not trust the above remedies, you can give preference to natural lice shampoo, which is easy to prepare at home.

    Mix five teaspoons of olive or coconut oil with five drops of essential oil of tea tree, five drops of rosemary oil and the same amount of lavender oil, menthol oil and eucalyptus essential oil. Add to the mixture a little usual shampoo and apply on hair and scalp.

    Leave the mask for an hour under a hat and a towel. Rinse the hair thoroughly without conditioner or balm at this stage, as the mixture of oils will make the hair soft and manageable.

    Consider the following:

    1. Breathing a child under 5 years of age may be difficult when using eucalyptus oil.
    2. Menthol oil increases blood pressure and can be dangerous in hypertension.
    3. Menthol and rosemary oil is forbidden to use during pregnancy. Do not include them in the shampoo in this situation.

    Kerosene, as an alternative to the fight with head lice

    How to remove lice: using kerosene, herbs or pharmaceutical preparations? The answer to this question still worries humanity. Lice are small parasites that have plagued us since ancient times.

    Pediculosis requires treatment, so this article will consider an alternative method of dealing with lice, which consists in treating the affected surfaces with kerosene.

    In advance, I would like to note that this method, despite its sufficient effectiveness, can bring a large number of obvious problems. Therefore, do not consider treatment with kerosene as the only option for getting rid of lice.

    Useful tips and step-by-step instructions

    If we are talking about body lice, then the use of kerosene in the fight against them is quite convenient and safe. First you need to boil all the linens and things for which such heat treatment is safe.

    Also kerosene process all the seams and joints in the closet. The method, of course, is simple, but the clothes, smelling of kerosene, will long remind their owner about the visit of insects.

    Our grandmothers knew a way of telling how to get kerosene lice out. For the treatment of pediculosis folk remedy, kerosene should be applied to the head. With a cotton swab, kerosene is applied to dry hair and thoroughly rubbed into the hair roots.

    Upon completion of treatment, a plastic bag is put on the head, covering all the hair. Head tightly wrapped with a towel. It remains to note the time required for the destruction of insects (about two hours).

    After two hours, you should carefully comb out lice and nits from the hair. The procedure ends with a hair wash using any cosmetics.

    Side Effects of Kerosene Treatment

    After learning how to remove kerosene lice, you should think about the possible side effects of this method. First, kerosene is very toxic. When applied to the skin there is a risk of chemical burn.

    In addition, its peculiar smell will replace all fragrances and perfumes in the coming days. Secondly, kerosene adversely affects the condition of the hair.

    After such treatment, the hair will become dull, dry and brittle, they will require restoration. It may not be worth the risk to try and cure head lice with safe and effective medications purchased at a pharmacy.

    Is kerosene effective against lice and how does it act on them?

    Despite the seeming absurdity, treatment with kerosene for lice does work, although not without harm to the human body. This tool allows you to poison the lice and nits, expelling them or destroying.

    But why is kerosene so effective in cases when you need to remove lice? There are several reasons for this:

    • Lice die even after short-term contact with the mixture, as it passes freely through their chitinous shells and enters the respiratory system, causing suffocation.
    • If the louse dies on contact with the mixture, it’s more difficult with nits. The mixture practically does not affect their body, but it destroys the sticky substrate, thanks to which the parasite is attached to the human hair. In fact, kerosene does not kill, but expels nits.
    • Also, due to the sharp smell with the help of this tool you can remove fleas and other parasites of the scalp.

    Can this mixture be used to treat pediculosis in children?

    During the Soviet era, many families used kerosene to remove lice in children, without particularly thinking about how to use it, how safe it was, and whether such treatment could be used at all.

    Moreover, penetration and prolonged contact of kerosene with the child’s skin is fraught with the development of chronic dermatitis (rosacea, perioral dermatitis, seborrhea), which will last for a lifetime and will require constant therapy.

    Hair can also be seriously affected, which is especially unacceptable in the case of girls. The version that kerosene can change the color and condition of hair for the rest of its life looks dubious, but the fact that these changes can remain for several months is quite real.

    Modern medicine postulates: kerosene for the treatment of lice, nits and other parasites in children does not apply. To treat pediculosis and other parasitic diseases of the scalp in children, as well as in adults, you need specialized drugs.

    How to use kerosene for removing lice?

    Much has been written about how to get lice out with kerosene. There are a huge number of ways to carry out this procedure, but we will focus only on one classical scheme that has high efficiency.

    This scheme is simple:

    1. Moisten a cotton swab or disc with a mixture, and then use it to apply the product on the head (hair should be dried before the procedure begins!), Including using cotton wool over the skin.
    2. After processing all areas, you should put on the head a plastic bag or any cap that does not allow the substance to pass through.
    3. The question of how much kerosene to keep on your head does not have a definite answer. On average, one hour is enough, at the end of which the mixture should be washed off as quickly as possible.
    4. After washing off the mixture, it is necessary to comb through the hair locks and divide them into strands, preventing the hair from adhering to each other.

    Kerosene for lice.

    This is one of the popular ways of getting rid of lice.

    • Spray your hair with kerosene. Put on a plastic cap or a regular bag. To prevent kerosene from flowing onto your face, tie a towel or any cloth over your forehead.
    • Hold for 15-20 minutes.
    • Wash off. Wash your hair with a simple shampoo.
