This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: to compare the effectiveness of interventions for the treatment of pediculosis capitis; to compare the effectiveness of different formulations (of lotion, shampoo, creme rinse, mousse or systemic treatments) of the same insecticide against pediculosis capitis; to determine the safety and tolerability of topical chemical or herbal applications, physical methods or oral treatment agents used for treating pediculosis capitis; and to determine the relative effectiveness of topical pediculicides, physical methods and oral treatments.
