Why cold?
Free yet cold ! some people on hear are very strange.
My doctors won't do it
I got one of these on prescription off my doctor, they really work!!
Also it comes with lifetime guarantee so if it breaks send it back and they will send you another!
just what i need for my kids!!! thanks for this
Great comb, i bought one of these for £10.00 on ebay about 6 years ago its wonderful and really works. My daughters all have long hair and i have to say this is the best Nitt comb i have ever bought
I got this from my Dr a few years ago, she hadnt heard of it but got it for my daughter. brilliant product much better than the plastic ones. Heat added
Its always been free on prescription.
can also get these on minor elements scheme ! boots do it.
Don't like that phrase really, I'm not sure but the phrase Nitty Gritty comes from the days of slave ships from Africa. The women in the hold were covered in grit and nits and the sailors would resort to sex with them at the bottom of the ships - getting down to the nitty gritty.

Maybe they should research phrases and stuff before naming lol

Why? It's classed as a medical device and is far more effective than most of the chemical based treatments prescribable if you know how to use the wet-combing method properly (which any doctor or pharmacist should be able to advise you how to do). There's a letter on their website that you can print off and give your doctor which should help persuade them, particularly if you've used treatments over the counter and they haven't worked.

Btw heat added, not enough people know you can get it free on prescription.
By far the best nit comb out at the moment. Had one for 6 years and wouldnt be without it to check my daughters hair every weekend. Heat from me !
There are lots of things that 'can' be prescibed, but due to local regulations, it may not be on a 'preferred' list of things available for a GP to prescibe. We use Aveeno for my son's eczema, for example. It's on FP10 (the prescription list) but my GP won't prescribe it as cheaper alternatives are available. I've voted hot, as it's a good reminder for people, but don't be surprised if your GP is a little reluctant to prescribe it.

Sorry, but you are completely wrong there. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/nitty-gritty.html

You've been caught up on the E&D bandwagon!
PLEASE don't make an appointment and take up your GP's time JUST to get this comb. It's a huge waste of resources. By all means, if you're there anyway...
i bought one it was brilliant. My son 'had' longer hair but after using this and sorting it all out I cut it off anyway as I didn't want to go through that hell again of scraping his little head for 3 hours!!!

Well worth the money. You don't need to get any shampoos. I got this comb second. I first got some shampoo and a cheaper comb which didn't get any eggs. It also has a lifetime guarantee so good deal all around. I know I could get it on prescription, but I would rather some old biddy get some cholesterol meds or insulin. :-)
