There are many remedies on the market today that can help with several different rashes and other skin problems. One of the remedies that can be used easily is Benzyl Alcohol. This is best used as a lotion for the treatment of head lice (small insects that attach themselves to the skin) in adults and children 6 months of age and older. Benzyl alcohol is in a class of medications called pediculicides. It works by killing the lice. Benzyl alcohol lotion will not kill lice eggs, so the medication must be used a second time to kill the lice that may hatch from these eggs.
Topical benzyl alcohol comes as a lotion to apply to the scalp and hair. It is usually applied to the scalp and hair in two or three treatments. The second treatment of benzyl alcohol lotion must be applied about one week after the first one. Sometimes a third treatment of benzyl alcohol lotion may be necessary. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use benzyl alcohol lotion exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
However, there are other instances, besides lice, in which Benzyl Alcohol can be used. Skin infections, rashes, and sometimes chicken pox can be helped with the use of benzyl alcohol lotions. It is always highly recommended that before using any type of lotion, you consult your doctor and look at the different side effects which may be present.
