NYDA is used for the physical treatment of scalp hair in case of infestation with head lice. It is also effective against nymphs and eggs (nits).
This is a Pharmacy Medicine item. We will ask you to complete a questionnaire to ensure this is appropriate for you which our pharmacist will check.
NYDA does not contain any harmful insecticides. The solution creeps deeply into the breathing system of lice, nymphs and eggs resulting in suffocation. Because this mechanism of action is physical, the development of resistance in lice is not possible.
There is a nit comb included in this product so use this on all family members hair to check for eggs/lice pre and post treatment
