Visitors or residents of Lahaina, Hawaii, that visit Urgent Care West Maui in need of lice treatment will be provided with the high-quality medical attention they deserve. Our skilled medical professionals will first begin the treatment process by lubricating the patient’s hair and examining it with a fine-toothed comb, looking for a live nymph or adult louse. Once the patient is diagnosed with an active head lice infestation, treatment can begin. In most cases, our doctors will recommend over-the-counter medications to kill the lice and will create an appropriately timed retreatment schedule to prevent lice from laying new eggs.
However, in some cases, lice develop resistance to the over-the-counter medications, and stronger treatment is needed. If lice persists, we will prescribe a more powerful medication regimen for lice treatment, which may include:
- Benzyl alcohol
