besides that stupid special comb? I discovered my daughter had lice yesterday and we started the treatment right away. We've washed everything again in the house certain toys in black bags, that lice spray all over the house. Pretty much everything. We've done over the counter treatment plus dumped rubbing alcohol in her hair (found online that it works) also used a hair dryer (kills lice faster) The only problem is that the eggs re still in hr hair we spent over 3 hours last night trying to get what little eggs we can find and that comb and speical gel doesn't work. My nails were more effective but they haven't been able to get them all. Does anyone know another way? She is 3 by the way/

Pretty much what samurai_chica said it took a couple of days of a couple hour sessions to get them all. My middle DD has brought them home 2 times from school in 2 years. Dish soap is supposed to help loosen the glue that makes them stick but honestly not sure if it really helped or not but you get to the point where you will do anything! That is why the second treatment is really important to get any eggs that you missed after they hatch. If you know where she got them from make sure they are doing a 2nd check in a week on the kids that had them I found out that DD's school was not doing this which means the problem can just keep happening.
Also the nix product is supposed to help prevent reinfestation for 14 days.
I now add tree tea oil to her shampoo as a prevenative and she wears her hair up everyday at school now.
