Hexit Dosage

Parents or caregivers who are applying Hexit (Lindane) to affected people should wear gloves made of nitrile, latex with neoprene, or vinyl. Regular latex gloves are not enough to stop Hexit (Lindane) from being absorbed through the skin.

Head lice:

  1. Wash your hair with regular shampoo and dry it completely. Do not use any conditioner.
  2. Wait at least one hour before applying the Hexit (Lindane) shampoo. Shake the bottle well and thoroughly cover your hair with the product. Apply the shampoo over a sink to reduce the amount of shampoo that may touch your skin.
  3. The amount you should use depends on the length of your hair, but typically 30 mL to 60 mL is needed. Follow the directions on the label to find the right amount for you.
  4. Make sure that the hair on the back of your neck and behind your ears is fully covered with the shampoo.
  5. Leave it in for 4 minutes. Then, begin adding small amounts of warm (not hot) water to your hair in order to lather the shampoo.
  6. Rinse all of the lather out of your hair immediately with warm water over a sink.
  7. Towel-dry your hair and use the nit comb to remove nits.
  8. Check your hair and remove nits daily for 7 days after treatment. If live lice and nits are still seen in your hair 7 days after treatment, speak to your doctor or pharmacist. Do not treat with Hexit (Lindane) again. You may need to use a different product.

Scabies:

  1. Do not use other medications or make-up on your skin while using Hexit (Lindane). Do not use Hexit (Lindane) right after a bath since warm skin might absorb too much of the medication.
  2. Shake the Hexit (Lindane) lotion bottle well and apply a thin, even layer on all of your skin area from your chin to your toes.
  3. Make sure enough lotion is applied to the folds in your skin, hands, feet (including soles), between fingers and toes, underarms, and groin. Avoid applying the medication to your face and eyes.
  4. Wear loose-fitting clothing after applying to avoid making your skin warm or moist.
  5. You should remove the lotion 8 to 12 hours after applying it, using warm water. Do not leave the lotion on for more than 12 hours.
  6. For children 6 years and older, remove the lotion with warm water 6 to 8 hours after applying it. During treatment, children should wear long sleeves, long pants, and gloves or mitts to prevent Hexit (Lindane) from getting in the mouth.
  7. If you still see live mites or new lesions on the skin after treatment, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Do not treat with Hexit (Lindane) again. You may need to use a different product.

Since lice and scabies are spread through contact, you should make sure that your family members and sexual partner(s) are examined for lice infestation. If they are infested, they should speak to their doctor or pharmacist immediately about using this product or other treatment options. Also notify your child's school, daycare, or other people who have been in close contact.

To prevent reinfestation, contaminated items such as bedding, clothing, towels, and hats should be washed in hot water and dried in the dryer using the hot cycle for at least 20 minutes. If items cannot be washed and dried this way, dry-clean them or seal them in a plastic bag for 2 weeks and wash normally. For head lice, combs and brushes should be soaked in hot water above 54°C or in undiluted Hexit (Lindane) for 5 to 10 minutes and rinsed with hot water.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor or pharmacist has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor or pharmacist.

It is important that Hexit (Lindane) be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist.

Store Hexit (Lindane) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Skin: Even after treatment, itching resulting from lice or scabies infestation can last for several weeks. This does not mean that the treatment did not work. If you continue to experience itchiness, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about treatment options.
