What are the possible side effects of Natroba?

Possible side effects of Natroba (spinosad), a prescription medication that's applied to the head and scalp to kill head lice, may include redness and irritation of the scalp or eyes. To keep Natroba from getting into eyes, use a towel to cover your face and eyes (or your child's if you're treating him for head lice) when you apply Natroba. If eye or scalp irritation occurs anyway, rinse the area with warm water and call your doctor. In rare cases, Natroba can cause dry skin and hair loss.

Talk to your doctor for ways to prevent head lice infestation and tips on using Natroba safely and effectively.
