The National Pediculosis Association stated that the mechanical (manual) removal is the safest and most effective way to remove nits and lice. Over-the-counter shampoos containing peremthrin may kill live lice, but not always. Strains of peremthrin-resistant lice are becoming more and more common. Children under the age of two, people with asthma, allergies, seizures, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their physician before applying these shampoos to treat lice. These shampoos do not kill eggs under the age of four days, so manual removal is still the most effective lice treatment.
According to Harold George Scott, Ph.D., Board Certified Entomologist, "Resistance is a reflection of populations undergoing selection to produce survival of the fittest. Resistance does not occur all at once. It develops over time in louse populations, so, in any particular location, both resistant and nonresistant populations may exist. This can cause much confusion, because pediculicides that work one day fail to work the next." Therefore, relying on pediculicides alone may fail to eliminate head lice.
