 Have you or your kids had them? What did you use to get rid of them??

 No one here has ever them them... I do remember getting checked at the nurses office during grade 3-6 though... The whole class would go down to be checked....

It would gross me out if my kids got it... UGH... Just thinking about it grosses me out....

 I had it as a kid and it was awful.  I remember my mom running out to buy the special shampoo and comb and scrubbing and combing my hair for hours.  Someone in my daughters class had it last year.  Knock on wood she steered clear of it.  The teacher had the kids put their coats and backpacks in garbage bags under their chairs for weeks.

Now my head is itchy with the terrible memories.

Gosh no, thank goodness! I have had friends whole kids have! YUCK!

Darn, now I'm itchy. And they finally got rid of that lice ad on the side of the screen that was driving me bonkers! UGH!

Oh, and my friend had to take her kids to some kind of specialist b/c they just could not get rid of the lice. I have heard mayo on the head and cover the head then wash works, but you have to comb them out, right?

 No thankfully! But just a few weeks ago there was a letter sent home b/c one kid had it at Em's school. But all the other kids ehads were checked daily and Em, and anyone else, never got.

I believe there is special shampoo to use though
