NYDA® and the British National Formulary (BNF)

NYDA® follows the recommendations of the British National Formulary (BNF), a joint publication of the British Medical Association and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. The BNF aims to provide prescribers, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals with sound up-to-date information about the use of medicines.

BNF Guidelines recommend as follows:

“Head lice infestation (pediculosis) should be treated using lotion or liquid formulations only if live lice are present. Shampoos are diluted too much in use to be effective. A contact time of 8–12 hours or overnight treatment is recommended for lotions and liquids; a 2-hour treatment is not sufficient to kill eggs. In general, a course of treatment for head lice should be 2 applications of product 7 days apart to kill lice emerging from any eggs that survive the first application.”

NB: NYDA® is designed to eradicate lice and their eggs (nits) in a single application1,2,3,4,4a,5but in accordance with the BNF guidelines, you should check your child’s hair again after a week (8 – 10 days) or so. If you find lice and/or their eggs, apply NYDA® again
