  • You can treat lice with Cetaphil -- its a face soap. It's harmless to you, and suffocates the lice. I saw it on the news. 96% effective! :)

  • I was treating my family's lice with the otc products, while pregnant, I was very careful not to be flinging product around, and cleaning up carefully, my doc told me it was fine.
