To Get Rid Of Lice, Parents Wash Their Daughter's Hair With Insecticide

Lice are sometimes quite stubborn pests. These parents decide to wash the hair of their 11-year-old daughter with insecticide. Children are vulnerable individuals because their immune systems are not fully developed. Sarleny Perdomo Nùñez is an 11-year-old girl who is said to have had lice in her hair. Her parents had the bad idea to get rid of it with an insecticide. Here are the details of this tragic story.

How To Get Rid Of Lice

The 11-year-old girl lived in the Dominican Republic. When trying to get rid of her lice, her parents would have washed her hair with an insecticide. Sarleny unfortunately did not survive. An investigation is opened.

Too radical “solution”
Perhaps it was while believing that they were doing the right thing that Maria Esther Nùñez and Dany Perdomo decided to use an insecticide to wash the hair of their little girl who was infested with lice. But the solution was far from effective since the little girl quickly lost consciousness after her parents applied the chemical to her, as the newspaper La Gran Epoca explains.

Arriving at a clinic in the municipal district of Hatillo Palma, in the municipality of Guayubin, it was unfortunately already too late, the little girl was already breathing.

An investigation is opened
It was during the funeral procession that the police intervened to recover the body of the little girl. After examination, the medical examiner confirmed that the cause of death of the little girl was poisoning with the insecticide Diazinon.

Sarleny's father presents a different version of the facts and completely denies the use of an insecticide. According to him, he would have entered the bathroom and found his little girl lying on the floor. He would then have done everything in his power to try to save her, in vain.

It will therefore be necessary to wait for the police investigation to decide on this case. The two parents, Maria and Dany, have been arrested and the investigation continues, according to a report by the Dominican National Police.

Getting rid of lice in children

It is not uncommon to see children aged 3 to 11 being infected with lice. The reason is simple: Head lice cannot jump or fly away, the only way they can spread from person to person is through direct contact. This kind of contact is very common in children playing together. In an article in Le Figaro, Dr Arezki Izri explains that it is useless to clean the whole house when someone has lice. According to him, lice can not survive long when they are ejected from the scalp, because they would no longer have access to the human blood necessary for their survival.

Here are some natural recommendations to get rid of it

White vinegar
White vinegar is a very effective remedy for getting rid of lice. Mix equal amounts of white vinegar and water, then use the solution as a shampoo. Leave on for 15 to 30 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. It is useful to know that lice do not tolerate sudden changes in temperature, so do not hesitate to mix the vinegar with hot water, but be careful not to burn the scalp.

Anti-lice comb
In addition to the white vinegar, use a fine anti-lice comb, you can find them in pharmacies. Wipe the comb after each pass so as not to affect other strands of hair.

Lice mask
If you want to cure lice in a natural way, it is possible to prepare a homemade mask using essential oil of tea tree and olive oil (or coconut).

Start by mixing a few drops of tea tree oil with 4 tablespoons of the oil of your choice, then apply to the hair making sure it is evenly covered by this preparation.

Leave on for 10 minutes and comb the hair with a fine comb. Once the operation is finished, rinse thoroughly.
