I'm almost 18 weeks pregnant Nd I have head lice I called my ob and I can't be seen til the 30th there is no way I can wait that long! No one else in my house has it just me. Can I use the treatment b cuz they didn't tell me if I could or not! Please help its driving me nuts!

Ps I use tea tree oil everyday its in my shampoo and conditioner


My mom just brought me a RID kit and said it was fine she used it on us as kids and it works and she used it when she was pregnant with my brother she said all I have to do is stay in a ventilated area so I'm not breathing it all in. What do you think? Have u used it?

Just got done with the RID treatment I stayed in the dining room with windows open and we sprayed the furniture floors pillows with the RID spray and are washing all bedding clothes and sealing dds stuffed animals. Thanks ladies for the input

Don't use the chemicals. Google home remedies- there are a lot of ways to kill what's on your head, invest in a good metal lice comb, and just comb, comb, comb.

Mayo and olive oil are both good for killing what's alive.

I would ask the pharmacist. they should know if you can use the treatment or not.

Chemicals aren't very effective, anyway. Get a good comb and look into all the more natural and more effective remedies like mayonnaise masks and tea tree oil.

My DD shared lice with me when I was pregnant, and I used Nix. I was in my third trimester, though. Good luck!

Vasaline and suran wrap around the hair to smother them. Like others have said tea tree oil/shampoo.
