Not familiar with Resmethrin. Is it a plant product that I can try
looking up for you?

Pyrethrines for humans are fine if not overdone, but according to the
_PDR for Herbal Medicines_ can be very dangerous in overdose. It
gives treatment directions including gastric levage, use of activated
charcoal, artifically maintenance of respiration, careful monitoring
of kidney function, etc. Too much of what would be a good thing can
be anything but good.
