my deepest sympathies.
my oldest daughter brought it home in May from school and i'm still struggling to get rid of it completely. we'll be good for a couple of weeks and then i'll find nits in their hair again. she too was infested the very first time, and it took 2 treatments to kill all the live bugs.
what you have to do is wash every soft thing in your house, toys included, and spray the mattresses, cars, couches, etc with lice killing spray (check your local drugstore or walmart) and it's also suggested to bag up soft toys, pillows, sheets that aren't going to be used for 2 weeks in a trash bag or one of those air tight bags.
as far as treating the hair, i do a home remedy. i pour listerine on their heads (careful not to get it in their eyes) and soak every strand of hair, then put a shower cap over it and leave it for atleast 2 hours. wash it out, then i comb their hair and check for nits, pulling out what (cont)
