Product Information

Hedrin 4% Lotion is used for the eradication of headlice infestations.

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.


Hedrin is a clear colourless solution.


Hedrin 4% 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.

A head lice comb is provided in this pack so use this to check for lice following treatment as it may take a second dose.

Warning or Restrictions

Do not use:
•In infants younger than 6 months of age.

•Discontinue use at the first appearance of a skin rash or any other skin irritation.
•For external use only.
•Avoid contact with the eyes. If contact occurs, flush with water.
•Keep hair away from sources of ignition, especially naked flames and burning cigarettes, whilst being treated with Hedrin. Treated hair can readily burn if ignited.

Product Uses

For adults and children aged 6 months and older: apply sufficient lotion evenly over dry hair and allow to dry naturally. Leave on for at least 8 hours or over night and rinse thoroughly with water and shampoo afterwards. Repeat again after seven days to ensure any lice which may have hatched in the time are killed.

If a member of the family has live head lice, check the other family members and treat all other cases of live head lice which are discovered at the same time.
