Permethrin for Lice
How Well It Works
Permethrin is very safe and effective. But resistance to permethrin has been reported in many countries (such as the United Kingdom and the United States). If resistance to permethrin is noted, your doctor can recommend other treatment (such as malathion or pyrethrin).
