Bug Busting is gold standard wet combing, the NHS recommended first line treatment for head lice

For Pharmacists

This product is of particular value to families to check the outcome of medication for head lice, as recommended in the NHS leaflet The prevention and treatment of head lice. As the leaflet points out, no treatment is sure to kill the eggs, and it is advisable to check for baby lice that can hatch from the surviving eggs. The Bug Buster combs are unsurpassed in their ability to lift out tiny, newly-hatched lice.  The Bug Buster Kit contains three brilliant Bug Busters plus the superlative Nit Buster comb. Bug Buster Kit – Pip code 233-1783 Approved for NHS prescription. Pharmacies can obtain supplies from Special Obtains at AAH, Alcura (Alliance Healthcare), Phoenix Healthcare, Medicare and Sangers. The Bug Buster Kit is on the drug tariff, part lXA more information for pharmacists >  

For Health Providers

The Bug Buster Kit is a registered medical device on free NHS prescription for children since September 2002.

Why is Bug Busting wet combing special?

To help parents and healthcare providers achieve a lasting solution to the persistent problem of head lice and nits, our charity developed the original Bug Busting wet combing method.

Reliable detection, even when there are only a few lice present, and even in really curly hair, became possible. The unique, bevel-edged teeth of the Bug Buster and Nit Buster combs work brilliantly with gentle shampoo and hair conditioner. For treatment, there is no dependence on louse-killing formulated products.

Instead, the Bug Buster Kit instructions explain precisely how you can simply break the life-cycle by periodically removing lice over the hatching period. Simultaneously you learn how to recognize any new incoming lice. No lotion can tell you if you have caught more egg-laying lice between doses.
