Lice at school...yuck!

My daughter's class has had an outbreak of lice. I check her head like every few hours. My head itches just thinking about it.

Do you know if they are pretty easy to see or what?

Is it bad to do the shampoo as precaution? The boxes say not to?

Look around the hair line for eggs... they are small and white.  If she has it at all she will mostly itch around the hairline.  But if you all do hall it, you have to, wash ALL linens spray beds/furniture, vacuum...

The eggs are eaiser to see. Is it bad just to do the shampoo in case.
