My oldest got Head Lice in August. We treated everyone in our home, treated the home, and even contacted the school so that they could take the steps needed to prevent a schoolwide out break. I did 2 follow up treatments, each a week apart. I just about pulled everyone bald with the nit comb to insure that there were no eggs left. I have been checking their heads once a week since. Well, tonight I found that my oldest has gotten them again. Is there anything I can do to prevent him from getting them again once we treat this time?Answer Question

Keep his hair short is the only way. I had to battle this several months ago and I have girls. Anyway keeping his hair short and/or using hair products will defer the lice away. They like clean, dark long hair.
