Primum non nocere
Doctor says he just wanted to get rich with lice 'treatment'

Parents who paid $285 for an experimental head lice treatment for their children might be scratching their own heads, now that the doctor selling the stuff says it's really a skin cleanser available for less than $10 a bottle at drugstores nationwide.

This is the kind of thing that sticks in my mind when a doctor is adamant about a specific treatment. Eroded trust in the medical profession is hard to heal...
