UPDATE: I took her to the school nurse before deciding to go to the dr and she gave her some shampoo and said to bring her back Monday for recheck. And for the ones who said why would i cut her hair, well she wants her hair cut shorter because its very long and last time she caught lice it was so hard getting rid of them and we had to spent nearly $100 in shampoos before it actually worked. For the ladies that said I am leeching off the system well maybe unless you are in my situation then i suggest you take your opinion somewhere else. We just moved 700 miles away to Texas from Alabama because things were really hard down there and we were about to go homeless. My parents helped us get an apartment and got him a job with my brother. Its construction so the hours will always vary especially in cold weather where he only works about 20 hours a week. With that being said we are really tight on money and can bearly afford our rent and car payment. I am not asking for pity either but many of us know that when things are hard you have to save every penny you can. Trying to get help from medicaid to treat my daughter was not leeching off the system.
