Known as Sklice, the treatment had been acquired by Sanofi from Topaz Pharmaceuticals last year. The company claimed that the Sklice lotion can kill off the parasites within 10 minutes of applying it on the head.

Clinical trials have shown Sklice to get rid of lice in more than three fourths of the kids who took part in the studies. Less than 1 percent of the kids who took part in the studies displayed any side effects which ranged from eye irritation, dandruff, dry skin, burning sensation and redness in the eye.
