i am so sick of mothers not treating their children and homes when they get head lice!!!!!!!!!! i understand that everyone at some pint is going to get it but what i dont understand is letting your children run around scratching their lil heads all the time and then sending them to school to set next to all the other children so they all then catch it. it costs me over $100 to treat my children, myself, the house and the car because mothers are to lazy to clean their house and comb nits from their kids hair. sorry just needed to vent over this because i now have to treat my kids and home AGAIN because of lazy moms!

Get some Greenbug for People and keep it on hand. It kills head lice - plus their nits - so you don't have to comb them out. It also works on mosquitoes, ants, fleas, etc. and it doesn't go bad so you'll have it for next summer. Greenbug is perfectly safe and green as it uses cedar as the active ingredient - isn't that brilliant? My sister told me about it and I think it is the best thing for lice ever. I lightly spray my girls hair and backpacks before school each morning to prevent and repel head lice since the other moms don't deal with them.

Head lice (Is your skin crawling?). Two new treatments.
(From Dr leslie Greenberg's Blog)
Good people get head lice. It is especially rampant in schools where coats may hang next to each other (and the lice essentially jump from one household to another). Head lice are becoming more resistant to over-the-counter rinses. There are two reasonably effective therapies to kill the head lice. Both are non-pesticide and non-neurotoxic therapies that asphyxiate the Pediculosis humanis capitis. Ick!

Ulesfia lotion. ItÂ’s a benzyl alcohol/mineral oil product that stuns the lice spiracles (breathing holes) so the lice drown in the mineral oil vehicle.(Too much information?) It can be used in patients older than 6 months. It needs to be used in a quantity to fully saturate the hair. Rinse after 10 minutes. It may not kill the eggs, so repeat one week later.
Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser. Cetaphil is applied to hair and scalp. 2 minutes later comb (not wash) out. Eight hours later the hair is washed with regular shampoo. This treatment is repeated once weekly for 3 weeks.

Cure rates for either treatment is 85-97%. Clothes and bedding should be heated in a hot dryer for 10 minutes and combs washed in isopropyl alcohol for 10 minutes.

Other home remedies like mayonnaise, olive oil, butter, Vaseline, and vinegar were not found to be nearly as effective.

Hope this helps.

Someone needs to pass this helpful info on to the cow whose family gets them even when no one else in town has them & maybe she wouldn't have to shave her's or more importantly her poor daughters head again.
