S-TMP/Bactrim/Septra for head lice??
April 12, 2001 on Medscape site had current abstracts regarding treatment of
headlice. One specifically addressed use of Bactrim: "Head Lice
Infestation: Single Drug vs Combination Therapy with 1% Permethrin and
TMP/SMX" Pediatrics, 2001: 107: E30. I've head of this before, but don't
know the exact mechanism for Bactrim's effectiveness....the article in Peds
probably describes it. Kris McHarg, CPNP
