Precautions While Using This Medicine

To prevent reinfection or spreading of the infection to other people, good health habits are required. These include the following:

  • Machine wash all clothing (including hats, scarves, and coats), bedding, towels, and washcloths in very hot water and dry them by using the hot cycle of a dryer for at least 20 minutes. Clothing or bedding that cannot be washed should be dry cleaned or sealed in an airtight plastic bag for 2 weeks.
  • Shampoo all wigs and hairpieces.
  • Wash all hairbrushes and combs in very hot soapy water (above 130 F) for 5 to 10 minutes and do not share them with other people.
  • Clean the house or room by thoroughly vacuuming upholstered furniture, rugs, and floors.
  • Wash all toys in very hot soapy water (above 130 F) for 5 to 10 minutes or seal in an airtight plastic bag for 2 weeks. This is especially important for stuffed toys used on the bed.
